[BY THE NUMBERS] Why is Bruce Arena, the Los Angeles Galaxy's new head coach, considered the USA's best coach ever?

5. Arena guided the University of Virginia to five NCAA titles. Its first was a co-championship with Santa Clara University in 1989. The Cavaliers then reeled off four straight titles in 1991-1994, an unprecedented and unduplicated feat. That era's Cavalier teams, comprised of American players, are widely considered the best in college soccer history.

5. D.C. United, which Arena coached from its inaugural season in 1996 through 1998, won five major titles: the 1996 and 1997 MLS titles, the 1996 U.S. Open Cup, the 1998 Concacaf Champions Cup and 1998 Copa Interamericana. D.C. United finished MLS runner-up in 1998. Arena, who was also coach of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team, left D.C. United after the 1998 season to become U.S. national team coach. D.C. United won the 1999 MLS title.

71. During Arena's eight-year tenure as U.S. national team coach it compiled a 71-30-29 all-time record, making him the national team's winningest coach ever. In addition to its quarterfinal appearance in the 2002 World Cup, the nation's most impressive World Cup performance ever, the USA won Gold Cup titles in 2002 and 2005 under Arena.
