[MLS AWARDS] Los Angeles Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena was named MLS Coach of the Year for the third time, winning the 2011 award after leading the Galaxy to the Supporters Shield as the team with the best record in the MLS regular season. The Galaxy's 19-5-10 record was also the second best record in league history.

Arena, the first coach to win the MLS Coach of the Year award three times, won the award in 1997 when he led D.C. United to its second straight MLS title and in 2009 when he rebuilt the Galaxy, which finished second to Real Salt Lake.

Arena beat out Sigi Schmid (Seattle), Peter Vermes (Sporting KC), Peter Nowak (Philadelphia) and John Spencer (Portland) for the 2011 award.
