MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Sigi Schmid, often mentioned as a potential successor to current U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley, has signed an extension that will keep him with the Seattle Sounders through the 2015 season.

Schmid -- the MLS career leader in both regular-season victories (he has a 148-107-82 record) and postseason victories (19-10-5) -- has guided the Sounders to two U.S. Open Cup titles and back-to-back playoff berths in the club's first two seasons in MLS.

The 58-year-old Schmid has won MLS titles with Los Angeles (2002) and Columbus (2008).

"From the moment we hired Sigi I knew it was the right decision, and that he was the right man for this particular club," said Sounders owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer. "I feel that even more strongly today. Beyond the victories and the trophies won, Sigi possesses a strong, positive character and he has represented himself and this club with tremendous class and professionalism. Sigi is the right coach to lead us to more successes and more championships."

    Seattle play ugly, ugly soccer, and have two designated players that jumped ship and a star (Montero) who looks like he doesn't care for much of the time. Good Luck Sounders supporters. Do you like the product on the field? If you don't, you can always vote out Hanauer. I admit the results have been good, but really ugly.
