The Philadelphia Union have signed their head coach to a much deserved 2 year contract extension. The signing comes less than a year after the Union won its first trophy, the Supporters Shield which is given to the team with the best regular season record. The Curtin led Union also became the first MLS team to win every single game at home. And under Curtin, the Union have made the playoffs 4 out of the last 5 seasons.
Curtin took over in 2014 and is already the franchise leader in wins. The pride of Bishop McDevitt went on to star at Villanova University before he turned pro. After his pro career wrapped up he returned home and became an assistant coach for the Union, working his way up to head coach. The case could be made that Jim Curtin is the best coach in Philadelphia. So this is well deserved
