The Caleb Porter era is over in Portland. In a shocking move, Porter has stepped down as head coach of the Portland Timbers, a source confirmed to the Oregonian/OregonLive Thursday. Porter’s surprise departure comes after a successful 2017 season where the Timbers finished first in the Western Conference before being eliminated in the Western Conference semifinal round of the MLS Cup Playoffs.
It's official: Caleb Porter is no longer the head coach of the Portland Timbers. The Timbers announced Friday that Porter and the club had agreed to part ways. The news first broke Thursday night. The unexpected move came at Porter's request, a source confirmed to the Oregonian/OregonLive Thursday. During his five years with the Timbers, Porter compiled a 68-50-52 record, led the Timbers to two first-place finishes in the Western Conference and won the 2015 MLS Cup.
Are the Timbers going to continue to gamble on Liam Ridgewell? The Timbers have consistently been a better team when Liam Ridgewell is in the lineup, but the Timbers captain was sidelined for 19 games due to multiple injuries this season after missing 12 games in 2016. The Timbers are making a significant investment in Ridgewell, which is a serious gamble moving forward in a league with a fairly modest salary cap.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
