    Let us move JK along now ! I understand Sigi Schmidt might be looking for a job.

    SIGI SCHMID is about one of the very few coaches that grew up in the US recreationsl, scholastic, collegiate semi-pro and pro leagues of the LA area, then as HC of UCLA, WCUSA '94 Assistant Coach to Bora MIlutinbovic (along side his coaching mates, Ralph Perez and Steve Sampson, et.al.)and stints as Head Coach of the Galaxy, Columbus and Sounders. Now talk about experience? Mr. Gulati, you also know him very well, so mi dear amigo, whatcha waiting for???

    I forgot to mention that he is one guy that will change things around in a four-month time window, lives in the LA area, etc. etc. and is beholden only to the beautiful game... futbol. P.S. Would it help if he also holds US Soccer, and NSCAA, plus probably Bundesliga's highest coaching licenses?

    Ric: Schmid is the best qualified of the US coaches available. There are younger less experienced coaches too. I would rather see Ramos or Friedel as interim manager than keep JK. Jason Kreis or Ben Olsen would be interesting choices too. Reyna appears to be focused on the long term growth of the sport for a larger impact than coaching one team of players.
