Kreis rumors heat up again as SI reporter's source claims "almost 100%" to NYCFC

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Spor

The ongoing Jason Kreis contract saga trudges forward today, with Sports Illustrated reporter Brian Straus offering up a tidbit of information claiming Kreis is "almost 100%" in signing with 2015-arriving MLS club New York City FC.

Update #2: Jason Kreis took to Twitter to respond to the claims, and while not denying anything, did have some qualms with the timing.


Update: Jason Kreis responded to reporters about the topic today at training. From Salt Lake Tribune reporter Chris Kamrani and ESPN 700 maven Bill Riley:


Who exactly this source is remains completely undisclosed by Straus, and while he's proven a fantastic journalist, the anonymity of a source does lend cause to take this one with a rather significant grain of salt.

Straus did indicate that the source says there's a chance Kreis could stay, in part because it would require he forgoes coaching for a year, as he'd need to build a team.

Kreis today came in third in 2013 MLS Coach of the Year voting, behind Portland Timbers' Caleb Porter (who won) and NYRB's  Mike Petke. While Petke's New York had the beating of RSL in July via two late goals, Porter's Portland failed to beat RSL six times through the season.

File this one under: "Ugh, not again."
