Robinson finishes third in voting for 2015 MLS Coach of the Year

Major League Soccer announced today that Vancouver Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson finished third in voting for the 2015 MLS Coach of the Year.

New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch took home the award.

The winner was decided by three voting groups: current MLS players; MLS clubs (coaches, technical directors, chief business officers and PR directors); and media members who consistently covered the 2015 MLS regular season.

Robinson, 39, coached the league's youngest team to a club-record 53 points and second-place finish in the Western Conference. The Wales native also steered the 'Caps to their first-ever Voyageurs Cup in the Amway Canadian Championship. Under Robinson’s direction, Whitecaps FC finished the season with the best road record in MLS and tied for the fewest goals conceded.

The second-year head coach was one of three Whitecaps FC finalists for the MLS year-end awards – defender Kendall Waston and goalkeeper David Ousted were the runners-up in their respective categories. 

Now, the 'Caps will have one last opportunity to claim a year-end honour when the MLS Best XI is revealed on Sunday, November 29.
