Paul Mariner has emerged as a candidate for the Toronto FC job, sources have told SBI.
A long-time New England assistant under Steve Nicol, Mariner had long been considered one of the top head coaching candidates in MLS before leaving New England to take over as Plymouth Argyle manager a year ago.
Mariner stepped down as Plymouth manager in May, after the team was relegated to League One, but he has remained a coach with the club.
Mariner is the first candidate to emerge as a potential replacement for Preki, who was fired during the season and replaced by interim head coach Nick Dasovic.
What do you think of Mariner as a candidate in Toronto? Hoping TFC goes in another direction?
