The Vancouver Whitecaps believe that they have hired a coach with a vision to lead the team to the next level.

Vancouver announced the hiring of current Carolina Railhawks coach Martin Rennie as the club's new boss starting in the 2012 MLS season.

Rennie, a 36-year-old Scotland native, is widely considered to be one of the top up-and-coming coaching commodities in the United States. He's guided the Railhawks to a league-best 14-2-3 record so far during a dominant run through the NASL schedule this season.

The move will allow current interim head coach Tom Soehn to return solely to his duties as director of soccer operations. He took over coaching after the club parted ways with Teitur Thordarson on May 30.

What do you think of the hire? Do you see Rennie having success coaching in MLS?
