After Caleb Porter's departure from Portland, Herculez Gomez explains why he wouldn't make sense for the United States. Portland Timbers have interviewed multiple candidates and hope to have a new coach in place by the end of the year.
The team parted ways with Caleb Porter this month after five seasons with the team.
Porter compiled a 68-50-52 record and guided the team to an MLS Cup championship in 2015. This past season, the Timbers finished atop the Western Conference.
Team owner Merritt Paulson said Wednesday the search is well underway and "to say there's significant interest in the position is an understatement."
