    that's sad for the US soccer. not only would he coach the team verry well, he could also made soccer more populair in the USA amongst the people, like Guus Hiddink did with South Korea and AUstralia

    I don't know if this is really such a bad thing for US soccer. OK Klinsmann was a world class player but as a coach he is still unproven, fair enough Germany did a lot better than expected at the World Cup but history shows the host nation usually progresses far in the competition, for example South Korea in 2002. German results before the competition had a lot of people calling for his head before the tournament started, so maybe he thinks it's best to quit on a high as far as coaching goes.

    Dang it! That stinks. So apparently we have two games coming up and no coach. That should be interesting. Then again, it's not like we had a coach before... :

    this stinks..they need a coach that can teach their players to dive..thats one thing i notice when watching USA play soccer is that they never draw fouls because their players will not dive
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Good point....I also think we need to fill our roster with players from Europe and South America

    i HATE the fact that people abuse/disrespect the game by diving, and i love the way the americans handle that stuff by not making it into a dramatic broadway show..unfortunately thats how the most successful teams play the game, by jumping and diving left and right all over the field..i honestly feel the americans would benefit from playing that sorta soccer, and theyve had it tough with officials because of their physical style combined with other teams graceful flailing and diving
