So JK had an interview with SI and he flat out said he wants to coach a second cycle. The history of coaches working a second cycle is not pretty. However JK talked about this cycle is laying the ground work for 2018. Returnig coaches sometimes have a hard time letting go of the incumbant veterans and sometimes are reluctant to bring in new talent. JK seems to say the right things about bringing USA to the elites (in fact he flat out says the US will not win the world cup in Brazil, thanks for the confidence Jurgen). What do people think about this. Think hes guarenteed to come back or does a group round exit seal his fate

He will return based on his results in Brazil. I'm curious to see if he returns if the US don't survive a "group of death" but play well in the process. I would think US Soccer would bring him back if that happened.

100% dependent on the result in Brazil at this point. If they get out of the Group or further he'll be welcomed back. If they fail to get out of the group we should go in a different direction.

If usa does bad in the world cup he should be fired soon after the wc ends... If we go deep then he will stay..

I would love JK to have another cycle with the USA. If he doesn't become coach, then he should be a technical director or president of US Soccer. Now I'm wondering who our 2016 Olympic coach will be.

I think he will be the front runner regardless. The amount of talent that is coming for the 2018 cycle will be ridiculous.

I would say that this USMNT cycle is a transition team to be honest, and always has been.

Klinsmann can better implement his style from the get go during the 2018 WC cycle, and he is going to have the talent to do it.

I fully support Klinsmann as head coach for the 2018 WC cycle.

Yeah i agree, this cycle has been nothing but transition. The next cycle will be an interesting one.

Say what you will about him, but I love the fact that he's always very straightforward and at times, quite blunt.

He's right, we do not have a chance in Brazil. I mean, obviously, a miracle could happen, but realistically we won't be in contention.

I support his stay for a second cycle.

I agree with what the last few posters have said. We all knew JK wouldn't take us to the semi-finals of the WC instantly. His hiring was all about changing the landscape and infrastructure of soccer here in the US, and I think we're well on our way.

Jurgen for 2018.

I say invite him for a 2nd cycle regardless of Brazil. Too much talent in the pipeline and they are laying the groundwork for an even more talented team than we have right now. It would be a waste to change managers when we all knew (Gulati included) that this was a long term venture.

nope all the work has been for the world cup if we don't get out of group stage, he has to get fired and let another coach take over and grow the talent thats upcoming..
Usa would be such an attractive team to coach many top coaches world wide would be salivating to coach usa is gonna be a very hot spot..

Have you not read or listened to anything that JK or Gulati has said since they hired him? Obviously doing well in the WC is every country's goal, but Jurgen was brought in to develop the US into a soccer powerhouse for decades to come, not just this cycle. If they don't make it out of the group stage, so be it. Jurgen has planted the seeds for a bright future, and I (and seemingly everyone but you) think he could do some very special things with the USMNT in 2018.

If you think Jurgen should be fired after the WC for a bad showing, I'd love to see you take over. Seems to me you know everything there is to know about the sport.

Well only cause Bradley blew the lead in the gold cup, I don't think there was reason to fire him let alone Bruce he was a very good coach.. Klissman has been very very Great.. But in case you dint know the world cup is all that matters, no one cares if you finish qualifying first, or win a cheap tournament known as the gold cup.. I would rather make a semi final in a WC than win 20 games game in a row. At the end of the day he will be judge how he does in the world cup and everyone here knows it.. Look at the undefeated patriots losing to the giants in the Superbowl, at the end no one cared what they accomplished in the regular season, The Superbowl overshadowed all those accomplishments, It will be the same for klissman, the world cup will overshadow everything he did in 3 years.. Who cares if you have plenty of talent if you don't know how to use it there's no point. I agree usa has a lot of talent but if he cant make it work a new coach needs to be brought in. Im saying if usa for example has 2 loses and a tie in group stage or even 3 loses he will definitely get fired and most likely gulati will be gone also.. Every single time klissman releases a roster people always have something to Bragg about, and complain about player selections and are never happy who he picks. I think he has done an outstanding job but like i said the world cup is all that matters and will overshadow any accomplishments no matter what.. If usa makes a deep run then yes he would get an extension til at least 2018 other than that his fate is up in the air.. I wish them the best luck to him and usa..

I agree, my thoughts exactly about this being a transition cycle. JK has done very well under the circumstances. He's just getting started. We've seen some wonderful stuff already and it will continue to get better. The job of changing the mindset and revamping the whole program from top to bottom could never be accomplished in one cycle. From where we were with bunker ball to where we need to go is like reinventing the wheel. I think he'll have the boys ready to go in Brazil and I would prefer he be given an additional cycle regardless if we go three and out in a tough group. Give him a shot to finish what he started. It's really a 2 cycle job minimum turning everything around.
