Porter won the 2015 MLS Cup with the Timbers and guided the team to playoff berths in three of the five seasons he was in charge. He previously built a powerhouse college program at the University of Akron from 2006-2012 before moving to Portland. He reportedly was interviewed for the open Columbus Crew SC head coaching position earlier this offseason.
