Coach Jason Kreis has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him on the sidelines for Real Salt Lake through the 2013 season, and will see the team retire the No. 9 jersey he wore as a Major League Soccer player later this summer.
The former striker was in the final year of his previous contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
"Jason continues to fit the profile of every great leader I have worked with throughout my career," team majority owner Dave Checketts said in a statement. "Not only is he one of the best young coaches in MLS, he's one of the best period. We are thrilled to have him here for a very long time."
