MEMPHIS, Tennessee –Sporting Director Tim Howard and Head Coach Tim Mulqueen announced midfielder Michael Reed as the newest addition to Memphis 901 FC’s 2020 roster on Thursday, pending league and federation approval.
Reed brings four seasons of USL Championship and eight seasons of professional experience to 901 FC.
“Michael will bring incredible professionalism, leadership and a plethora of experience to go along with his winning mentality,” Mulqueen said.
The past two seasons Reed has held the position of captain for Nashville SC. Prior to his season-ending ankle injury in August, Reed led Nashville to a 12-5-5 record.
“Michael is a box-to-box midfielder with incredible fitness and work rate,” Mulqueen said. “His ability to cover ground allows him to connect the lines in possession from all over the field.”
Reed has over 7,000 minutes of playing experience in the USL Championship. In the past three seasons, he has scored four goals and collected eight assists.
Reed is the fourth 901 FC signing for the new year joining Rafa Mentzingen, Zach Carroll and Mark Segbers along with the nine returners from 2019 season: Captain Marc Burch, Brandon Allen, Pierre Da Silva, Liam Doyle, Raul Gonzalez, Triston Hodge, Dan Metzger, Duane Muckette and Leston Paul.
