Former New England Revolution SuperDraft pick Ryan Kinne signed with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds (USL PRO) on Monday.
The 23-year-old midfielder/forward was drafted by the Revolution in the third round of the 2011 SuperDraft. His lone MLS experience came in the final minute of a 2-1 win over D.C. United on Mar. 26, 2011.
Following his release from the Revolution last March, the Connecticut native signed with CFC Azul (PDL), where he scored eight goals in 15 games.
“I’m excited to get back on the field and to be challenging for a USL PRO Title,” Kinne said in a statement. “Looking forward to getting into camp, meeting the fellas, and starting training.”
CFC head coach David Kelly, who coached Kinne at the youth level and was reunited with his former charge last season, supported the move in a statement from the team.
“It was a pleasure to have coached Ryan for a second time in my career,” CFC Azul Head Coach David Kelly said. “He did brilliantly for CFC Azul, and he’s a true professional. We wish Ryan the best of luck with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. I know he will do great. It’s only a matter of time that he becomes a fan favorite there.”
