Revolution name new president and general manager
Brian Bilello is the new president and Michael Burns the new
general manager of the New England Revolution.
Wednesday’s moves come 16 days after Steve Nicol was fired
following 10 seasons as coach. Bilello said he expects to name a
new coach within a week after a season in which the Revolution
finished last in the Eastern Conference, going 5-16-13.
Bilello spent the past six seasons as chief operating officer of
the Revolution, focusing on business operations. In his new
position, he’ll also oversee the soccer operations. He succeeds
Burns had been vice president of player personnel the past four
seasons. Now he’ll handle all aspects of the soccer operations,
including coaches and player moves. Burns played for the Revolution
when MLS began in 1996.
