Players looking forward to beginning the Arena era | "It's a new opportunity"

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Change is in the air, and you could feel it walking into Gillette Stadium on Thursday morning as Bruce Arena was officially introduced as the New England Revolution's sporting director and head coach.

It has been a jam-packed week for the entire club – for the players, coaches and front office staff – as a whirlwind of managerial turnover unfolded after the Revs parted ways with both former head coach Brad Friedel and former general manager Michael Burns in the span of a few days, filling both roles with Arena’s hire.
