Toronto FC courting Orlando City's Heath for assistant role

Toronto FC’s nightmare 2012 season isn’t quite over yet, but they are already working hard to prepare the team for 2013.

Part of that preparation is trying to build a revamped coaching staff, and sources have told SBI that Toronto FC has targeted highly-regarded Orlando City head coach Adrian Heath for a role on that staff.

According to multiple sources, TFC has offered Heath a position as Paul Mariner’s lead assistant for the 2013 season, and sources tell SBI that Heath is considering the offer and is expected to make a decision on whether to accept it or not by Monday.

This development would appear to shed some light on the future of current head coach Paul Mariner, with appears ready to stay on as head coach in 2013. That decision seems to be a curious one to have made already considering the team has yet to name a new president (a decision expected to be made in the coming weeks).

What do you think of this development? Think Heath would be a good addition to TFC’s coaching staff? Surprised to hear Mariner looks set to return as head coach next season? Who do you think should be TFC head coach in 2013?
