Montreal Impact retains Biello for 2016 MLS season

Mauro Biello has been named the Montreal Impact's head coach and director of player personnel after acting as the interim head coach over the last three months of the MLS season. Biello, 43, led the team to third place in the Eastern Conference regular season and the semifinals of the playoffs after taking over for Frank Klopas.

"I'm very happy and honored to represent this club," said Biello. "It's great to see that the club has shown confidence in me and continues to believe in me. I'd like to thank Joey and the club for this opportunity and I will work has hard possible to make this team competitive every year. I am looking forward to continue working on the success we found in the final months of the season."

Biello was named interim coach on Aug. 30, and Impact ended the 2015 season with a record of seven wins, two losses and two ties in the regular season, while compiling two wins and one loss in the playoffs.

"Mauro is the perfect example of what this club represents: passion, pride, loyalty and a profound desire to succeed," said Impact president Joey Saputo. "In a very short time and under difficult circumstances, he produced some excellent results as interim coach. We are confident that he will help bring more memorable moments to the club."
