Three thoughts on the Revs firing Brad Friedel

On Thursday, the New England Revolution announced that they had relieved head coach Brad Friedel of his duties. Here are three thoughts on the decision.

  1. It was the right move. The hiring of Friedel was uninspiring from the beginning. While the former netminder has an impressive playing resume, his lack of professional experience was a concern. Friedel’s high-press system was impressive at first and had me second-guessing my initial thoughts. When opponents adjusted, it became clear that Friedel was over his head. This became more and more apparent as time went on.
