Well, that didn’t take long.

source:  Mere hours after announcing the end of his playing career, Matt Reis is headed across the country to where he was born and raised, becoming goalkeeper coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Reis was born and raised about an hour’s drive away from L.A. in Mission Viejo, Calif., and played his college soccer at UCLA before becoming a third-round draft pick of the Galaxy in 1998.

“We are pleased to have Matt join our staff and coach the club’s goalkeepers,” said LA Galaxy general manager and head coach Bruce Arena. “Matt’s experience as a player and knowledge of MLS will serve him well in his new role.”

Reis is also going to oversee the Galaxy Academy’s goalkeepers.

Suffice it to say it’s a fairly monumental day for the Reis family.

    He got a great job. He can still do a role what he knows best and in his hometown.
