Former Houston Dynamo assistant coach John Spencer will be officially introduced as the Portland Timbers head coach for the 2011 MLS season during a press conference on Wednesday.

Spencer agreed to a deal earlier this summer, and will be given his first crack at an MLS head coaching job when the expansion Timbers begin play in 2011. His coaching career began as an assistant under Dominic Kinnear back in 2006, lasting through this season. This came after a lengthy playing career that included stops at Chelsea, Rangers, Everton and Colorado.

The press conference will be broadcast online, and is scheduled to start at 1:30p.m. ET. Video of the stream can be viewed below.
