‏@TimbersFC: Timbers sign head coach Caleb Porter to long-term contract extension: http://ow.ly/XBasr #RCTID  :good:
Over Porter’s first three seasons, the Timbers have compiled regular-season point totals of 57 (2013), 49 (2014) and 53 (2015). Over that span of time, Portland’s combined point total (159) ranks as the fourth most in MLS, behind only the New York Red Bulls (169), Seattle Sounders FC (167) and LA Galaxy (165). Additionally, Portland has registered a league-best 35 shutouts across Porter’s first three seasons, while the club’s 14 road wins the last two seasons rank as the most in MLS over that span.
Porter coached in his 100th game as an MLS coach against Real Salt Lake on Oct. 14, 2015, posting a record of 39-25-36 in those games, which tied San Jose Earthquakes head coach Dominic Kinnear for the fewest losses (25) in MLS history in a coach’s first 100 career games. In addition, his .570 winning percentage during that span ranks fourth among active coaches through their first 100 games, behind the LA Galaxy’s Bruce Arena (62-37-1, .625), Seattle’s Sigi Schmid (52-33-15, .595) and Kinnear (40-25-35, .575).
The MLS Coach of the Year after his first season in the league in 2013, Porter engineered a 23-point improvement in points and an MLS-record 43-goal improvement in goal differential over the previous season. Portland’s five losses during the 2013 regular season tied for the fewest in MLS history in a 34-game season. In addition, the Timbers led the league with 15 shutouts and 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.
