Former Houston Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer surprised many in the soccer community when he abruptly resigned last week from his spot as a top assistant on the club. As has been speculated, there’s more evidence that suggests Spencer could end up as the new head coach of the Portland Timbers, who will join Major League Soccer next year.
Current Timbers head coach Gavin Wilkinson said this weekend that the team still has a strong interest in Spencer:
“He is still a person of interest for us. We’ll continue talking and see where it takes us,” said Wilkinson. “But John has got a lot of options.”
Stay tuned for more developments sure to come in the upcoming days and weeks.
