The Boston Globe says that the Revs have allowed Seattle Sounders management to talk to current NE assistant Paul Mariner. I’ve been surprised for while now that he has stuck around at Foxboro rather than strike off on his own. It looks like the Sounders have solid (and experienced) management and strong financial backing which will make this more appealing than your average MLS vacancy. I hope he does go there. On top of the obvious pun about “Another Mariner arriving in Seattle,” those hip glasses of his just seem to fit in the Northwest, don’t they?
