Tax documents reveal U.S. coaches' salaries

The latest U.S. Soccer Federation tax documents, which cover March 31, 2009, through April 1, 2010, reveal that U.S. men's national team coach Bob Bradley earned $818,244 -- about $600,000 in base salary and marketing compensation and the rest in bonuses for Confederations Cup and World Cup qualifying achievements.

Women's national team coach Pia Sundhage earned $219,635 and men's under-20/youth coach Thomas Rongen earned $159,821. (The period did not include major competitions for the women's national team.)

The U.S. men's players who were with the squad for the Confederations Cup or World Cup qualifying cycle received bonuses. Steven Goff reports that the biggest earners in 2009-10 were forward Jozy Altidore and reserve goalkeeper Brad Guzan at $150,639 apiece because they either played or were included on the game-day roster most often. The others were not listed.

USSF chief executive Dan Flynn earned $583,554. Federation President Sunil Gulati is not compensated by the USSF.
