Ryan Nelsen is set to be announced as the new Toronto FC head coach on Tuesday.

Goal.com revealed the 35-year-old QPR defender had looked set for a role as an assistant or player/coach in the MLS but is now set to take over from former England international Paul Mariner as the club’s boss.

Nelsen will be reuniting with club president and general manager Kevin Payne, under whom he played at DC United before heading to the Premier League to sign for Blackburn Rovers in 2005.

The New Zealand international, who has no prior coaching experience, would be taking the head coaching position from a man who had just stepped into the role last June. Mariner was hired as TFC’s director of player development in January 2011, a role he performed before taking over the coaching reins from Aron Winter.

Nelson will be the eighth manager in Toronto FC’s six-year history.
