Who are your top 5 candidates for USMNT head coach for the 2026 cycle? Right now I'm going off of Berhalter not being rehired for another cycle.

Here are mine:

1. Jesse Marsch
2. David Wagner
3. Tab Ramos
4. Caleb Porter
5. Roberto Martinez( would be a very interesting and intriguing hire considering the talent that may be available. And he has done great things for Belgium)

these are good choice: Marsh has done great, Wagner would be able to reach dual nationals, tab did fine, I dont like Porter,

Don't sleep on Matarazzo he could rise if he has a good season in the bundesliga with Stuttgart. He's another American coach with some standing, but I feel like 2026 may be too early for him or Marsch. I'm a big fan of Tab and of course Martinez would be interesting. One thing is for sure, Berhalter is just the point A to point B coach. He doesn't have the charisma or enthusiasm needed for the type of stage this event will be.

If we are just throwing random names out there. I wouldn't mind seeing Pochatino (sp)?.... What if Klopp frees up from Liverpool by then. That would be amazing!

Just like players I would love to see more American coaches overseas. So as much as I think it would be really exciting to see what Jessie Marsch would do with the nats, I would rather he continue his European Journey. Same with David Wagner. I would also like to see Tab Ramos try his luck in Europe or South America. Óscar Pareja because he is so good at developing young talent would be an interesting choice, he also understand the American player very well both North and South. I think Caleb porter could be a good fit. Obviously there are many European coaches that could do the Job, all I want is one that is passionate about coaching our team.

I would like to see what an accomplished national team manager could do. Enough of this BS about American identity. Just hire a competent manager that has succeeded at the highest international level. I think (I hope) we are past the Brek Shea era where players needed to be coddled. The upcoming guys know what it takes to succeed in a cutthroat atmosphere. I think the US program should be done taking gambles on unaccomplished coaches.

@spank- definitely the hire has to stand on its own, we are the hosts. That being said I think we've gotten to the point there are many good American coaches, some just haven't gotten looks yet. That's changing. I hope for the best from Matarazzo and of course Jesse Marsch could use a promotion.

If we bring in a foreign manager he has to get it spot on. Jurgen (though I liked him) was much too divisive and single minded for the USMNT. We need all hands on deck.

Jurgen was a great man manager but he was clueless on tactics.

I like most of the names except Caleb Porter. I'm still a little sore from the 2012 Olympic qualifiers.

Still pretty upset that we never gave Tara Martino the light of day. He doesn't speak English wasn't a good answer and STILL isn't. Even though he coached American players in Atlanta.

I don't think that he would take the Job at this point, but I wanted him to be our coach over all others. For him to go to Mexico of all places was a huge slap in the face.

I actually think that sometimes a huge loss like Caleb Porter and we, suffered by not qualifying would be helpful for the WC. He knows first hand that you don't get 2nd chances and you need to seize the moment when it arrives. Good Coaches can bring players to a higher level when needed. I like the Porter has bounced back from failures and thrived. I like that he won MSL cup when no on rated his team. I like the way he has handled Columbus, they are a very good team now. He wouldn't be my first choice but I wouldn't be unhappy about the hire either.

Looking at the Crew tonight vs Atlanta, I can see Porter's merit. They were a solid passing team keeping control of possession. In some ways, I could see where they could improve in the final third. I can see some benefits with Caleb Porter.

They played a lot better the first two games. I think everyone is getting tired! Caleb Porter called it an embarrassing performance. I like that about him too, players should never coast and should be called out for ball watching, jogging around the pitch, etc. You don't get better by going through the motions. He is still not my first choice for head coach but he is certainly on my radar.

Perhaps I am getting ahead of myself, but imagine in 5 years a coach salivating to want to coach Pulisic and Reyna in their primes with a vastly more experienced Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie in the midfield behind them.

We have been saying there is a lot of talent coming though the pipe for years, well, were here now, there is so much young talent compared to what we used to get we are bursting at the seems. It might be easy to find a coach in fire years. Did anyone else see Jürgen Klopp salivating watching Pulisic tear up his team the other day?
