“I respect Caleb’s decision to seek his next challenge. He leaves Portland with a lasting legacy valued by everyone associated with the club, and I wish him nothing but success in the future,” team owner Merritt Paulson said in a statement.

Porter, 42, was the Timbers head coach for the past five seasons. Prior to being appointed the Timbers head coach, he was the Akron Zips head coach.

He also guided the team to the MLS Cup in 2015. He was also named the MLS Coach of the Year during his rookie campaign in 2013.

This season, the Timbers were the top seed in the Western Conference. However, they fell to the Houston Dynamo, 2-1, in the conference semifinals on aggregates.

He finished his tenure with a 60-50-52 record.
