Former player and current television analyst Shep Messing dropped a big rumor bomb on Wednesday during halftime of the New York Red Bulls win over the Montreal Impact. Messing said he had information from sources at three clubs that:
- Current New York City FC head coach Jason Kreis could leave that club and go to the Seattle Sounders
- Current Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid could leave that club and go to NYCFC
- Current Portland Timbers head coach Caleb Porter could leave that club and return to a college coaching job
"LA is not until 2018, for one," he said. "Secondly, I love it up here in Seattle. I'm really enjoying myself here and my time here. There's nothing I want to do more than deliver an MLS Cup to the fans here."
