Minnesota United has signed coach Adrian Heath through the 2024 season, the MLS club announced Thursday morning.
Assistant coaches Ian Fuller, Sean McAuley and Stewart Kerr also got new contracts.
“Adrian was absolutely instrumental in the competitive success Minnesota United achieved in its first five seasons in MLS,” MNUFC General Manager Shari Ballard said in a press release.
Heath was signed for the inaugural MLS season for the Loons in 2017. In five years, he is 73-79-39. The Loons reached the Western Conference Finals in 2020. Heath will coach the MLS All-Stars when they face the LIGA MX All-Stars at Allianz Field on August 10.
“I’m so happy to continue my coaching career with Minnesota United. I’ve said this many times, but in a perfect world this would be my last coaching job. I love the club, the fans and community. My family and I have built a life here and couldn’t be happier staying here in Minnesota,” Heath said in the press release.
Fuller is in his seventh season with the Loons, McAuley in his third and goalie coach Kerr in his third.
The Loons will next play Inter Miami on Saturday.
