Jurgen Klinsmann is heading to MLS, but it won't be as a coach.

The Globe and Mail is reporting that Klinsmann is in talks with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment to join in a consultant role with Toronto FC — specifically assisting in the process of hiring a head coach and general manager.

Klinsmann, and his company Soccer Solutions, will also take a look at the organization of the club as a whole, and make recommendations as to who can oversee renovations at the club.

An official announcement is expected to come next week, and will mark Klinsmann's first foray back into club soccer, since a failed head coaching gig with Bayern Munich came to an end back in 2009.

What do you think of the news? Surprised to see Klinsmann head to Toronto? Can he make a difference?
