[U.S. SOCCER] U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati revealed that Juergen Klinsmann’s contract is through the 2014 World Cup, for which qualifying begins in June of 2012, and the German addressed how he will select assistant coaches.
Gulati said, "The commitment we've made [with Klinsmann] is through the World Cup."
Klinsmann said he won’t rush to name his staff.
“I would like to approach it by working from game-to-game, with different people,” Klinsmann said. “I won’t confirm a full-time staff over the next couple of months, because I want to see what’s out there.
“There are a lot of good, highly qualified coaches in the U.S. I might not know. So I need to talk to people. I need to understand what’s out there.
“I’ll talk to a lot of MLS coaches, obviously, and get their perspective and see who I can invite as guest coaches, guest assistant coaches basically.
“It was a different situation seven years ago with Germany because of the media pressure and speculations, you needed to calm it down right away. I think here because we’re not jumping into qualifying right away, we have that opportunity. We have exhibition games, so I can try out different coaches by my side and see how they’re doing.”
