Steve Kelley for the Seattle Times:

Roger Levesque is leaving the Seattle Sounders. The 31-year-old forward will play his last game in Wednesday’s friendly with Chelsea.

He is quitting soccer to pursue his master’s degree in business at the University of Washington. He said he eventually wants to find a job in the nonprofit world.

This Seattle Sounders season has it all. This is the year that will be remembered as the ultimate year that will be building the legacy of soccer in this town.
