Dan Flynn: Behind the scenes at USSF
Daily Herald, April 29th, 2010 1:50PM

MOST COMMENTED

Dan Flynn is the most important man in U.S. Soccer you've probably never heard of. He is CEO/Secretary General of the U.S. Soccer Federation and runs the day-to-day operations of the business, working to develop the national team programs and coordinating the Federation's efforts with the professional soccer leagues, including MLS and WPS. But Flynn prefers to stay out of the limelight.

"He (Federation President Sunil Gulati) clearly is the spokesperson and provides the vision and the strategy as well with our board as to where the Federation ought to be played as well," said Flynn, who has been at the Federation's helm for 10 years.

"The sport continues to be in its growth mode," Flynn said. "Our TV ratings for our sport, as a national team they've grown and in other areas they've grown, but they're not to the level we want them to be. ... The one area that I'd like to see is the continued growth of that average fan connecting with and watching Major League Soccer or watching and following the men's and women's national teams. That's one area that everybody is trying to work hard at, trying to figure out what's the best way to connect that fan, that consumer."

    I think Bob Bradley should be fired as the US coach and replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann. Klinsmann can get us to the next level of play for the 2014 World Cup.
