BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, August 4, 2011
US national team head coach Jurgen Klinsman today announced who his five assistant coaches would be for the upcoming friendly against Mexico.

The list includes former World Cup veterans for the US Tab Ramos and Thomas Dooley along with Martin Vasquez Mike Curry and Mark Verstegen.

Vasquez is no stranger to Klinsmann as he served as his assistant at Baryern Munich.

Klinsmann announced on Monday that he would not have a full time staff for several months. He added that the rest of this year would most likely consist of guest coaches serving as his assistants until he found a staff he was comfortable with.

I really like the selection of Dooley, he always seemed to have a magic aura that made the team do better whenever he was selected.

On Sorber - Perhaps the Chicago Fire would be a good move for him? They have been coached by their Technical Director for a while now, and as their inability to finish games shows, they could use some new blood.

solid choices. These are all pros.
We need to qualify for the world cup in 3 years.
It's smart to take younger players.
We were a little old this world cup.

I wish Edu played more.
And I really like Beckerman.

Bob picked his own assistants. It just wasn't a big deal. I am curious what Mike Sorber, one of the long-time assistants, will do next. Would like to see him become the #1 for a college side, MLS, or maybe even a second tier side.

Curry is hired as the goalkeeping coach and Verstegen has worked with Klinsmann on the German National team as strength and conditioning coach.

Good selections and I like it. I am not familiar with last two picks. I am trying to remember if there was ever news article stating who Bob Bradley naming as his assistants when he took over 5 years ago? I don't think I have. So perhaps, USSF selected them for him? If that is the case, that is a sign of Klinsmann's range of control. Just wondering..
