If they don't hire a coach before the friendlies in June, then its clear that USSF is targeting a guy who is managing a team at the WC.

Not necessarily in the WC, but is certainly managing a team right now.

We have competition in that regard with Italy, but they generally hire an Italian manager.

I'm totally fine with hiring a good coach after the WC but Dave Sarachan is a horrible interim coach.

The current interim should be doing his best to call in new players and identify young future contributors to the NT. Sarachan and Arena are essentially the same person. Don't be surprised if you see players like Sapong, Rowe and Opara called in for the upcoming friendlies.

Rowe is young and needs to be further integrated, same with Lleget.

Personally I'm not against selecting players from MLS. There are some players in the league who'll add something to the USMNT player pool....
Gonzalez, Steffen, Glad, Zimmerman, Lletget, Rowe, K. Acosta, Adams, Arriola, Canouse, Lima, Lennon, Vincent, D. Acosta, Morris, etc....
But there is greater talent emerging in Europe:
CCV, EPB, Robinson, Olosunde, Moore, Saief, Scott, Parks, McKennie, Weah, Tillman, Taitague, Sargent, etc...

But in order to test these young players we need a coach who's going to call them up and play them. These are the players for the future and need the reps to build chemistry together. Not guys like Sapong, Hedges, Opara, Bradley, Bedoya, Zusi, etc...
It's time to turn the page and build for the future.

I am hearing Berhalter may get the job. I looked at his wikipedia page to see his history. I couldn't help but feeling a sense of lol + doom when I read these two things:

1) Berhalter expressed confidence in the ability of the team in the run up to the tournament (the 2006 World Cup) but was an unused substitute in all three group games.

2) Berhalter was named head coach for Swedish club Hammarby IF on December 12, 2011. Berhalter was fired on July 24, 2013 for a "lack of attacking play".

When he took over Hammarby they were in the 2nd division. He was hired on with the expectation that Hammarby would gain promotion the the 1st division. He knew he would be fired if they did not gain promotion. They finished 4th that season with only the top 2 places gaining promotion. As I recall they were close maybe 4 points shy, I don't really remember the exact number. He is a very defensive minded coach as you can tell whenever you watch the Columbus Crew. Personally if were going to hire and American coach I would prefer Jessie Marsch as the Red Bulls move the ball well and attack. I don't care what nationality the coach is as long as I never have to watch anything as pathetic as the T&T game ever again.

If I had to chose between Marsch and Berhalter, I'd probably go with Berhalter.

They are both great. Marsch is probably a better motivator...a lot more fire on he surface. He would probably play younger players more readily. The thing with Marsch, he has a good system, and he gets his teams up for the fight, but I'd be concerned if his plan A is shutdown, that he wouldn't have a solid plan B or C.

Imo, Berhalter might have a better handle adapting to in game tactics against international coaches.

For pure entertainment, I'd pick Marsch...the game would be wide open...all or none press induced turnovers or broken press counters defending in acres of space...

I think that would scare the hell out of most of the stodgy USSF...Berhalter is a much safer pick for them.

If you watch the Crew he is a possession style coach.

I don't put any stock in rumors right now. I think there will be many candidates for the job soon enough.

What about Carlos Queiroz? Is he a name the federation will still be interested in? I know he was a name of interests in the past and has worked in MLS and had a grand idea for soccer in this country. He will probably be available after the world cup.

What do you think?

Could be a good option. I personally like the idea of Guus Hiddink.

Could be a better hire(Hiddink). He is a guy that is always looking for the next challenge and usually gets the most out of his team plus he is Dutch. Stewart is half Dutch, I do not see why he would consider it unless he thinks Hiddink no longer has lightning left in the bottle. Please no MLS coaches. We should be pushing our players to play in Europe right now teams MLS with many MLS-based players are not doing too well in the World Cup. I do not count Mexico.

Hiddink also turns 72 this year and is retired. I would like to see us bring in a manager with experience managing at levels higher than MLS, but guys like Hiddink or van Gaal only work as bridges to somebody else who would be managing us in 2026.

The final stretch of the English league season is upon us, with several Americans on the verge of relegation with their teams.
