Mike Petke named new Real Salt Lake coach

SANDY, Utah (AP) Mike Petke will get another chance to lead a Major League Soccer franchise.

Real Salt Lake introduced Petke as its new head coach Wednesday. The former New York Red Bulls coach replaced Jeff Cassar, who was fired three games into the season.

Petke spent two seasons with the Red Bulls, amassing a 30-19-19 record in that stretch. New York claimed the 2013 MLS Supporters' Shield and reached the 2014 Eastern Conference finals during his tenure.
