The U.S. men’s national team has a few directions it can go to determine who will take charge as its next head coach for the most important four-year cycle in the program’s history.
Ahead of the expanded 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be hosted by the USA alongside Canada and Mexico, the US men have a unique opportunity to use the coming years to prepare for a breakthrough on the biggest stage. Expectations for the men’s team to make it big on home soil will be higher than in any previous edition.
After decades of trying to establish themselves in the upper echelon of international soccer, the U.S. now has an opportunity to gain millions of home fans while using host support to reach a World Cup milestone. Therefore, hiring the right head coach is critical to the health of the national team not only now, but for years and decades to come.
2022 World Cup boss Gregg Berhalter is out of contract and his future is yet to be determined and an investigation is also underway. Now the U.S. Soccer have announced that the process of recruiting their next head coach could take months, saying they are targeting a hire in the summer.
