Portland's Porter wins Coach of the Year honor
[MLS AWARDS] Caleb Porter, who led the Portland Timbers to the Western Conference regular-season title in his first season
in MLS, was named the 2013 MLS Coach of the Year. Porter arrived from the University of Akron, making him the eighth former college coach (out of 13 recipients) to be named MLS's top coach.
Porter, who accepted the job during the 2012 college season, led the Timbers to a 14-5-15. The club’s five losses tied the MLS record for fewest losses in a 34-game regular season.
Porter guided the Timbers to a 15-game unbeaten streak this season -- the longest by a first-year head coach in MLS -- and 23-point turnaround from the 2012 season -- the most in MLS.
Porter finished with a weighted toll of 126.28 points in voting by management, media and players. He finished ahead of New York's Mike Petke (85.78
points), Real Salt Lake’s Jason Kreis (26.58) and Colorado's Oscar Pareja (20.12).
