MLS Expansion - San Jose has a new logo with wings plus a GM

The San Jose Earthquakes have released their new-ish logo. The differences from the old logo are slight but they are there (new on top, old on bottom of image). The top of the logo has little wings, the Earthquake no longer has a richter line through it and the colors are a little different; other then that, not much has changed.

The other big news out of the new team from San Jose is the hire of John Doyle as General Manager of Soccer Operations. Doyle was the first selection of San Jose in 1996 and was captain for five seasons. He was named MLS Defender of the Year in 1996 and was a member of the MLS West All-Star Team in 1997. He also played for the US in the 1990 World Cup.

Looks like things are coming together for the 'Quakes. Now how long till they announce the accusition of Landon Donovan to head the team?
