ESPN Q&A

In the short term, we need a new technical department run by general managers for our men's and women's programs -- akin to athletic directors at universities, reporting to the CEO of U.S. Soccer -- responsible for recruiting, selecting and managing all national team coaches, curriculum and player development at all levels. This way, soccer operations would be managed by soccer experts that we can hold accountable."
