    • Yes, It is very likely that US Soccer will not make any other decision until at least near the end of the 2018 WC. I am sure (or at least hope) that US Soccer is already reaching out to potential candidates to learn if they are interested as well as to make sure that their vision of soccer development in the US matches reality.

    • The USSF is not going to hire a coach until after they’ve hired a GM. I haven’t heard any real progress on the GM front, just a few names that have been thrown around; so don’t expect anything on the coaching front for a couple months after they hire the GM.

      We’re going to stuck with Sarachan for a while yet.
