    HEAD COACH CALEB PORTER Head coach Caleb Porter is in his third season with the club in 2015 after guiding the Portland Timbers to record-setting campaigns in his first two years in MLS. Guiding the team to an impressive turnaround season and the clubs first-ever MLS postseason appearance in 2013, Porter helped direct a record-setting offense in 2014 as the Timbers netted 61 regular-season goals, a club record across all eras.

    He was announced as the Timbers head coach on Aug. 29, 2012, and joined the club ahead of the 2013 MLS campaign. Porter received the Slats Gill Award for Sportsperson of the Year at the Oregon Sports Awards on March 9, 2014, becoming the fourth soccer-related figure to receive the award since it was founded in 1957. On Aug. 6, 2014, Porter helped guide the MLS All-Stars to a 2-1 win over German power Bayern Munich in the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game at Providence Park in Portland.

    The 2013 MLS Coach of the Year award winner, Porter has compiled one of the leagues top winning percentages among active MLS head coaches with a 41-25-36 mark (.578) after leading Portland to double-digits wins in each of his first two seasons. The 25 losses in his first 100 career games as an MLS head coach ranks tied for the fewest losses with San Joses Dominic Kinnear among all MLS coaches who have reached 100 or more games in the league. Under Porters guidance, the Timbers have made Providence Park one of the toughest places to play in the league, registering an impres-sive regular-season mark of 24-7-20 at Providence Park over the last two-plus seasons. In 2014, the Timbers netted a team-record 61 goals while compiling one of the highest point totals (44) across the final two-thirds of the regular season recording the highest goal differential (plus-9) of any non-playoff team in MLS history. Portland also made its first appearance in CONCACAF Champions League, contesting matches against Alpha United of Guyana and C.D. Olimpia of Honduras during the competi-tions group stage.

    During Porters first season as head coach in 2013, the Timbers assembled one of the biggest turna-round seasons in MLS. In comparison to 2012 totals, the Timbers assembled a 23-point improvement in points and an MLS-record 43-goal improvement in goal differential. Portlands five losses during the 2013 regular season tied for the fewest in MLS history in a 34-game season and the Timbers led the league with 15 shutouts. The Timbers recorded a 15-game, home unbeaten streak during the 2013 regular season, posting a league-best 11-1-5 home record at Providence Park and an MLS single-season record 11 home shutouts. In 2013, Portland qualified for the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time since joining the league in 2011. Additionally, the Timbers made their deepest run in club history in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup in 2013 under Porters guidance, reaching the semifinals of the tournament.

    Prior to joining the Timbers, Porter was one of the most successful coaches in NCAA history during his tenure as head coach at the University of Akron (2006-12). He compiled a career mark of 123-18-17 and was named 2009 NSCAA National Coach of the Year. Porter led the Zips to back-to-back NCAA Col-lege Cup appearances (2009, 2010) and the schools first national title in any sport in 2010.

    Porters coaching career also includes time as the head coach of the U.S. U-23 Mens National Team during 2012 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying and three years as an assistant coach on the U.S. U-18 National Team (2009-11). Porter was an assistant coach for six years (2000-05) at Indiana University.

    As a player, Porter was the 27th overall pick by the San Jose Clash in the 1998 MLS College Draft. He spent time with San Jose and the Tampa Bay Mutiny before a knee injury ended his professional play-ing career in 2000. He also played for the U.S. National B Team from 1996-97, winning a bronze medal at the 1997 World University Games. As a player at Indiana, he was a three-year captain and led the Hoosiers to four conference titles. Porter was the runner-up for the 1997 Hermann Trophy.

    Porter graduated from Indiana in 1998 with a degree in sports management. He and his wife, Andrea, have three children two sons, Colin and Jake, and a daughter, Stella..
