Since the firing of Peter Laviolette as Flyers coach, a lot has been made of Eagles coach Chip Kelly's being the longest-tenured Philadelphia coach among the four "major" sports teams in Philadelphia after only five games.
This news, which has been reported frequently, has the Union of Major League Soccer taking exception.
John Hackworth was named the Union's interim manager (which in soccer is head coach) on June 13, 2012, replacing the fired Peter Nowak. Hackworth had the interim tag removed on Aug. 30, 2012.
The team has played 54 games with Hackworth guiding the Union.
He was asked Wednesday if being snubbed when Philadelphia's major sports are mentioned bothered him.
