Revolution Part Ways With Nicol After Ten Seasons

After missing the Major League Soccer playoffs the last two seasons and finishing with the worst record in the Eastern Conference and the league this season, the New England Revolution announced Monday they have released head coach Steve Nicol after ten seasons with the franchise.

Nicol finishes with a career record of 112-108-31 and was fourth best in league wins behind Sigi Schmid of the Seattle Sounders, former MLS and US Men's National Team head coach Bob Bradley, and current Los Angeles Galaxy and former USMNT head coach Bruce Arena.

Nicol had led the Revolution to six straight Eastern Conference championships from 2002 to 2007 and saw them advance to the MLS Cup final four times -- 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007 -- only to lose each one.

New England also won the 2007 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup title and was the only MLS team to win the 2008 SuperLiga between the league and the best of the Mexican Primera Division.
