Jurgen Klinsmann out as Football - coach of US soccer team
Jurgen Klinsmann is out as coach of the US soccer team. US Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati announced yesterday that Klinsmann has been “relieved of his duties” as coach and technical director for US Soccer. Gulati will conduct a media teleconference call today. Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley in July 2011 and led the team to the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup title and the second round of the 2014 World Cup, where the Americans lost to Belgium in extra time. But the US was knocked out in last year's Gold Cup semifinals, lost to Mexico in a playoff for a Confederations Cup berth and started 0-2 this month in the final round of World Cup qualifying.
