US Men's National Team defender Steve Cherundolo has told a German television channel that he has been told that Jurgen Klinsmann will be the next US Men's National Team coach.

US Soccer front man Sunil Gulati has said that he hopes to name a new coach by the end of November and early in December at the latest.

Hopefully this piece of information is more accurate than the previous rumors that Jose Pekerman will be named the US coach.

Carolina RailHawks about to add a goalkeeper and announce signings

There have been a boatload of rumors about who Chris Economides, Scott Schweitzer, and the Carolina RailHawks will be signing this offseason leading up to their inaugural season in the USL 1st Division.

One name that has leaked out is the John O'Hara, a goalkeeper who played on Irish Youth National Teams in the past and has been playing for Sligo Rovers FC in Ireland.

The RailHawks are expected to announce multiple player signings at a press conference next week. With rumors involving a variety of free agents who have played for the Rhinos recently, it will be interesting to see who they have signed. Although, my guess is that there could be more former members of the Richmond Kickers that land in Cary as opposed to former Rhinos.

But, only time will tell.
