Tuesday Kickoff: Notes on Columbus, KC and more

Good morning all. It's already a busy Tuesday so let's just jump right into the action:

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Guillermo Barros Schelotto is ready to secure his green card, a move that would suggest Schelotto isn't quite ready to leave MLS. The Dispatch also reported the Crew's re-signing of forward Jason Garey.

Sources tell me that the Kansas City Wizards are set to sign a midfielder and defender, with the signings potentially being introduced today. The defender is one of the Colombian defenders signed by MLS last month.

Those of you awaiting word on the Chicago Fire head coaching position should find out later on today who the choice is. Former El Salvador head coach Carlos De Los Cobos is being reported as the pick, but as of this morning no deal has been finalized.

ESPN is set to launch a 3D channel in June, and it will kickoff with a World Cup match on June 11th.

Struggling Setanta has dropped the Premier League from its schedule and looks set to be taken over by Fox Sports.

Owen Coyle is set to leave Burnley for Bolton. No word on what that will mean for Stuart Holden's trial at Burnley.

That's all for now. I will look to add to this post shortly. For now, share your thoughts on the above stories in the comments section below.
