"It's a huge first step," United coach Ben Olsen said. "We've had these before, but this one's different because of the resources the ownership group has, and it's in D.C. We haven't gone down this road with the District."
The Memphis Grizzlies have decided to part with the winningest coach in the franchise's history, telling Lionel Hollins they will not be renewing his contract as head coach coming off their first trip to the Western Conference finals.
When D.C. United take the field to kick off a new season in March, the club for the first time will do so without Kevin Payne pulling the strings from the front office.
It's quite easy to breed cynicism. So any wariness regarding D.C. United's new ownership group, introduced Tuesday at a classy affair atop the W Hotel, is understandable. We've seen the pomp and circumstance before. But when it comes to finding the club a soccer-specific stadium, the D.C. faithful know not to get their hopes up.
As D.C. United on Tuesday took a long-awaited step into a new era of ownership, investor Jason Levien saved a moment during the announcement to observe his extended family.
Two sports executives have sued former Philadelphia 76ers owner Comcast-Spectacor seeking a $2 million finder's fee over the team's October sale.

The Philadelphia 76ers are on the market and a person familiar with the deal says the franchise once home to Wilt Chamberlain, Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson could be sold within the week.
"We're all in right now," Levien said. "We're fully committed to this project."
"We're creating a better future for this ward — it's a great economic opportunity," Levien said. "We're creating a home for our fans and our organization that I'm proud of as the growth of soccer just explodes around this country."
