A Clean Canvas for USMNT - Ernie and McBride move on with no HC

Both Brian McBride (GM) and Ernie Stewart (Sporting Director) have decided to move on. US Soccer is using Sportsology Group to not only find the new Sporting Director, but currently analyze head coach candidates to accelerate the new Sporting Director's hiring process when that Sporting Director is hired to make the head coach decision.

U.S. Soccer is conducting a "full review of the men's nation team program" - Cindy Parlow Cone.

Once the Sporting Director is hired, that individual will oversee the process of hiring the new USMNT head coach. In the interim, Anthony Hudson will continue to serve as the USMNT head coach until a permanent head coach is named. They hoped to have a sporting director hired by the start of the Women's World Cup. So it leaves the timeline for a new permanent head coach up in the air.
