Should U.S. Men's Soccer hire a foreign coach?

The United States Men's National Team has been without a full-time head coach for a year after failing to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Some think that kind of catastrophe deserves a coach who comes from and has worked overseas; a person who knows how the top countries organize and run top national squads. Others think a coach from the United States would be a better option. What do you think? ⚽

USMNT needs a fresh start. 

U.S. Soccer's focus on trying to keep its staff and players purely American has yielded no results where it matters most—World Cup titles. Look at this totally unmanipulated chart. Six head coaches from the United States appeared at the World Cup and none have won. 

On the other hand, 21 coaches born outside of the U.S. have won all of the World Cups. American head coaches have done nothing in the World Cup! Coaches in soccer-obsessed countries have a perspective of the game that American coaches simply do not. U.S. Soccer needs to hire an international coach.

People seem to forget that the problems with the USMNT started with a coach who was born outside of the United States. Jurgen Klinsmann isolated the locker room leaders, choosing to groom international players with American roots instead. What happened was a locker room meltdown that deteriorated into the situation fans saw against Trinidad and Tobago—uninspired play and the United States' exclusion from the World Cup.

The Americans need someone who has been brought through the system and knows how to communicate with players. That kind of familiarity can go a long way. Only an American should be the head coach.
