He said he had opportunities to return home to coach in England after his dismissal, but was committed to staying in the United States to help soccer continue to grow in popularity.Its going to be difficult in the first year. We know that, Heath said. Were going to have to keep growing. But I saw enough in the last 18 months in Orlando, to know that we can put a team together to compete from Day 1 in Minnesota. That has to be the aim, to take it to the last game of the season where were in there pitching in for every single game that we play.United is making the jump from the second-tier North American Soccer League. The franchise is building a new stadium in St. Paul, but the team will begin play in 2017 on the University of Minnesotas campus while construction is completed.Heath is from Staffordshire, England, and played professionally for 18 years before getting into coaching. He was a standout midfielder with Everton in the 1980s and became a coach in the United States in 2008 when he took over the Austin Aztex in the USL. The team relocated to Orlando in 2010 and won two USL Pro championships and three Commissioners Cups before joining MLS.I believe in football in this country, Heath said. I had an opportunity to go back to England to work, but I wanted to stay and prove myself in this country. Im really proud of the opportunity I had and what we did in Orlando and Im really looking forward to it. Howard Wilson Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. Myles Garrett Jersey .
