https://sports.yahoo.com/us-soccer-gms-report-ceo-021914766.html Details of the role have been clarified a little. The GM's will report to Dan Flynn. Knowledge of the US leagues will be an important factor in the role. This also further confirms Cordeiro's hands off approach. "“The main responsibilities will include hiring and firing of the senior national team head coaches, overall responsibility for the technical side of the senior team, build a strong, integrated national team staff and management of the day-to-day environment, and monitor of the player pool and integration of new players,”" Current search team is Dan Flynn, Jay Berhalter, Carlos Bocanegra, Angela Hucles(ussf board member), Ryan Mooney(director of sporting development) , and Nico Romeijn(sport development programs director). So don't expect someone from outside the umbrella to get the job. I really thought that they may bring in someone from a successful club team or national team set up, who could bring fresh ideas. Guess not.
