Portland Timbers manager Caleb Porter was named MLS Coach of the Year on Monday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Portland Timbers manager Caleb Porter has been selected as MLS Coach of the Year.

Porter, in first season with a professional club after leaving the University of Akron, led the Timbers to a Western Conference-best 14-5-15 record. That's a 23-point improvement from 2012. Porter, who guided Akron to an NCAA national championship in 2010, also coached the U.S. Under-23 men's national team that failed to reach the 2012 Olympics in London before turning the Timbers into a contender.

First-year New York Red Bulls coach Mike Petke was second in the voting after guiding the club to its first Supporters' Shield. He was followed by Real Salt Lake's Jason Kreis, whose revamped side reached the MLS Cup final, and Colorado's Oscar Pareja.
