FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Revolution have hired five-time MLS Cup winner and former U.S. national coach Bruce Arena as its coach and sports director.

Arena succeeds Brad Friedel, who was fired as coach last week, and Michael Burns, the general manager who was dismissed Monday. New England is 3-8-2 and is last in the Eastern Conference. Arena is the eighth coach in club history.

The 67-year-old Arena has coached 14 seasons in Major League Soccer, with a record of 202-121-89 with the New York Red Bulls, D.C. United and L.A. Galaxy. He won titles with D.C. United in 1996 and 1997 and with the Galaxy in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

He has had two stints as U.S. national coach and holds the record for victories with 81. Arena also won five NCAA Division I championships over 18 seasons at Virginia.
