Jason Kreis, Superstar!

The King is dead. Long live the King. Jason Kreis, The Player, has retired from Real Salt Lake, but Jason Kreis, The Brand New Head Coach, is now in charge of the struggling Major League Soccer squad, with John Ellinger kicked upstairs to the technical director position.

The first player signed by expansion Real Salt Lake, Kreis was toiling with mixed results in Real's midfield this season, as Ellinger opted for speedy Jeff Cunningham in a lone striker role en route to a lackluster 0-2-2 record. Kreis takes over a franchise perhaps best known for being the current squad of 17-year-old phenom Freddy Adu, and for controversies surrounding a long-term stadium deal in Utah.
