Major League Soccer's worse kept secret confirmed.

Jason Kreis, fresh off a season where he head Real Salt Lake to the U.S. Open Cup and MLS Cup finals only to lose them both, has been named NYCFC's head coach (Twitter confirmation here).

The announcement confirms what was American soccer's worst kept secret: That one of it's best coaches was jumping ship for the league's most controversial expansion side.

How is this Red Bulls related, you ask? Well, many speculate that Red Bulls' assistant Robin Fraser, who was Kreis' assistant with RSL before taking a head coaching gig with Chivas USA, would take over in Utah.

It's also an excuse to post this:
