As we enter a new World Cup cycle, all eyes are turned toward the United States Men’s National Team as they embark on a new journey to get back to the World Cup. As they begin with the Kickoff Series of friendlies next month, there’s one main question hanging over the program? Who will be the next head coach?
Currently, American interim manager Dave Sarachan will be in charge when the USMNT take on Brazil and Mexico next month, but he’s not viewed as a candidate for the permanent job. The United States Soccer Federation has hired a general manager, a new role created to oversee the entire USMNT program and whom will be responsible for coaching hires. That man, Earnie Stewart, just assumed the role full time on August 1st and is now in the process of evaluating possible candidates.
So, today this community gets to sit in Earnie Stewart’s chair, and we ask this question: who do you hire as the next U.S. Men’s National Team head coach? There is no perfect candidate out there, so we want you to chime in with who you think is the best option to take the United States forward into this cycle and get us to the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. You can stay within MLS with a coach like Peter Vermes or Tata Martino, or you can pick a coach from abroad, maybe a David Wagner or Juan Carlos Osorio. You can have a pick that you think is realistic, like Tab Ramos, or you can go bold and call for a coach like Zinedine Zidane to lead the team. For any choice you have, be confident in your pick and give us some reasons why you think that person is the best possible coach to take over.
