U.S. Soccer has been weighing up replacements for current coach Jurgen Klinsmann should he be let go, per ESPNFC. Speculation has increased that Klinsmann could be on his way out after the past week saw the USMNT get off to a horrific start in the hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying. The U.S. lost at home to Mexico on Friday and then got destroyed 4-0 at Costa Rica on Tuesday.
U.S. Soccer has been in touch with former USMNT boss and current Los Angeles Galaxy boss Bruce Arena as well as Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes over the last 12 months, the report says.
We took a look at potential candidates on Wednesday.
The U.S. currently has zero points in the hex and returns to action in March against Honduras and Panama. Whether Klinsmann is there remains to be seen.
There are still eight matches to go in the hex, and there are reasons for USMNT fans to be calm whether it's with Klinsmann or someone else. Mexico made the 2014 World Cup after winning just two out of 10 hex games, so still plenty to play for.
But our readers have made up their minds as to what should happen.
If you are U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati...are you firing USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann after the losses to Mexico and Costa Rica?— CBS Sports Soccer (@CBSSportsSoccer) November 16, 2016
