FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis retired Wednesday after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Reis, who spent the past 11 seasons with the Revolution, is a four-time MLS all-star. He starred at UCLA before playing for the Galaxy from 1998 to 2002 and helping the club win its first MLS Cup in 2002.
He's coming off a strong season with a 7-0-4 record for New England, the first MLS goalkeeper to go undefeated while playing at least 10 games. But he played in just 12 games because of physical problems and the Boston Marathon bombing in which his father-in-law, John Odom, was severely injured.
