NFL executive Manning returns to soccer as RSL president

MOST COMMENTED

After four years as an executive with the NFL Philadelphia Eagles, Bill Manning is returning to soccer as the president of Real Salt Lake.

Manning, an All-American at the University of Bridgeport, worked in the CISL, A-League and MLS, where he was president and general manager for the last two years of the Tampa Bay Mutiny's existence.

After the Mutiny's demise in 2001, Manning worked for the NBA's Houston Rockets and then joined the Eagles, where he was Vice President, Sales and Service.

"Bill Manning comes to us with a tremendous background in sports management," said
Owner David Checketts. "His experience in the National Football League and professional soccer is a wonderful combination that I feel will carry Real Salt Lake to new heights. It has always been my goal to have the best franchise in MLS. I know Bill is the right person to lead us there as we enter our fourth season in Major League Soccer and prepare to move into our world-class stadium."
