The Head Of US Soccer Is Stepping Down After World Cup Miss

The Head Of US Soccer Is Stepping Down After World Cup Miss

The men's team will miss out on the World Cup for the first time since 1986, having failed to win enough games in the qualifying stage.

Carter joins a crowded field that includes former US national team members Eric Wynalda, Kyle Martino and Paul Caligiuri, along with USSF vice president Carlos Cordeiro, Steve Gans, Paul LaPointe and Michael Winograd.

The ballot for his successor takes place in February with seven candidates so far declaring an interest including former United States internationals Eric Wynalda, Kyle Martino, and Paul Caliguri, Steve Gans, a former player turned attorney who has advised Premier League clubs on their business and is very involved with youth programmes and coaching; Mike Winograd, who played professionally in Israel; Paul Lapointe, a soccer administrator; and former Goldman Sachs banker Carlos Cordeiro, Gulati's vice president who surprisingly said he would run against him and who would be very much seen as the continuity candidate in terms of the non-domestic focus of the US's ambitions.

As the United States prepares to enter a year in which it will watch as 32 other nations contest the most important sports tournament in the world, its soccer efforts will also be under new leadership in 2018.

Winter storm possible in Northland on Monday
The watch included the Iron Range, areas of the Arrowhead away from Lake Superior, and International Falls. Snowfall of 1 to 3 inches expected, along with areas of blowing snow.

Sunil Gulati announced through an interview with ESPN's Sam Borden that he will not run for another term in the upcoming US Soccer Federation presidential election. However, he felt that the best thing for him, and the federation as a whole now was to "see someone new in the job". Klinsmann was given his marching orders earlier this year after putting the USMNT in a precarious position during World Cup qualifiers and Gulati chose to turn to Bruce Arena to steady the ship, much to the consternation of the soccer faithful in the country. All of the above candidates have been involved with U.S. Soccer for a long time, whether it be on the field or behind the scenes, and each of them bring an interesting perspective as to why they could be the right fit for the job. "I've got 25 years of walking the hallways with soccer as my business". He also was deputy commissioner of Major League Soccer from its launch until 1999; and president of Kraft Soccer Properties, which operates the New England Revolution of MLS.

Gulati will not be leaving the US Soccer landscape cold turkey. It's about 4 million registered players, referees, medical safety, grassroots stuff. Head coach Bruce Arena stepped down following the loss, leaving the team now without a man in charge.

Perhaps the most interesting campaign is that of Cordeiro. "This is about me being the most qualified person to lead the federation into the next generation".

Gulati will now focus on heading up the 2026 World Cup bid committee and his role on the FIFA Council, while the race to replace him as the head of U.S. Soccer heats up.
