Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis retires after 16 seasons
OXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -
New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring 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 league all-star. He
played for the Galaxy from 1998 to 2002 and helped 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. But he played in just
12 games because of physical problems and the Boston Marathon bombing
in which his father-in-law was severely injured.
The 38-year-old Reis returned in August and helped the Revolution to the playoffs.
He's fourth in MLS history among goalkeepers in games, fifth in wins and saves and sixth in shutouts.
