Carolina RailHawks retain Colin Clarke

The Carolina RailHawks have been one of the more consistent teams in recent seasons, and will look to maintain that good form in 2015 and beyond. The club announced on Tuesday that they had reached a multi-year agreement with head coach Colin Clarke, who has been with the RailHawks since 2011.

Since taking over in Carolina, Clarke has helped the RailHawks become a perennial contender. He's also had quite a bit of success in the U.S. Open Cup, consistently guiding his side to upsets over MLS sides.

Given his success recently with the Puerto Rico Islanders and the RailHawks, I was expecting to see Clarke linked to an MLS job or two in the coming weeks (I actually thought he'd be a great fit in Houston, who were looking at Gio Savarese). That said, I'm glad that he's signed on long term with Carolina, as seeing the NASL retain its better players and coaches is good to see.
