I am aware that we have discussed this issue here at WSU before. But now it seems to start to move on the issue. According to the latest news, it’s Jill Ellis will take Pia Sundhages role until a decision is taken by the union. This means that she will lead USWNT in the matches against Germany later this month (October). Sunil Gulati of the U.S. Soccer also says that there are 25 to 30 applications for the position of coach. It is both U.S. and foreign applications. He also says that there are 10 regions that want to be in the new league. It will take a more active role by the U.S. Soccer side in the new league. It has previously been private. But now it is said that national team players should be employed for the most part of the US soccer Association. A discussion should be with the national team that will play in the league for what they think.
It is hoped that a decision of the coach role will be taken by the end of this month (October)
