Rev hails new coach Heaps: 'A welcome change'

MOST COMMENTED

New England midfielder/defender Chris Tierney says Revs fans will enjoy the team's playing style under new coach Jay Heaps, who replaced Steve Nicol after the Scotsman's 10 years at the helm.

“I think Jay [Heaps] is implementing a new style of play which is going to be more exciting to watch,” said Tierney, a Rev since 2008. “I think we’ll score more goals, be more positive than we probably have played in the past. It’s a welcome change for us and I think we’re all excited about it.”

Tierney said Heaps, the former Revolution defender turned head coach, has changed how the team practices and prepares for games and the season.

“I think Jay’s brought in a new level of professionalism that might not have been there before,” said Tierney. “Stevie [Nicol] definitely had his own style which worked for him for many years, but I think Jay is a little more up-to-date in terms of taking care of the physical side of things and really doing the homework and taking care of the details in terms of going over video and talking to guys individually and making sure we’re in top shape physically. That’s definitely a welcome change for us as players.”
