Not a lot is going on while the Rhinos search for a new head coach.
So, here is the best I could find roaming around the internet......
- Devo has an article in today's D&C about Calloway not being retained and how Darren Tilley appears to be leading the pack to replace him. And while I hinted at John Harkes yesterday, I doubt that the Rhinos can afford to lure him away from ESPN right now.
So, it will be interesting to see if Tilley gets the job, what his staff will look like. Will Billy Andracki return as the goalkeeping coach? Will his main assistant be someone like Craig Demmin, Bill Sedgewick, or another blast from the past?
It's going to be very interesting to see when they make the big announcement and which way this goes.
I just hope that this isn't a rush job as they have made this move really, really late in the off season.
- I have to give a big thumbs down to the three choices for the name of the Seattle MLS team: Seattle Alliance, Seattle Republic, and Seattle FC. I voted for Seattle FC, but I wasn't thrilled about any of the options.
- American Soccer News.com is back.
- Kasey Keller is the best option in goal for Bob Bradley? I'd go with Tim Howard at this stage of their careers.
- Barcelona is also planning on visiting Chicago's Soldier Field this summer. But, they will not be taking on the Fire.
- The Red Bulls just gave out a contract to erect Red Bull Park?
- And in case you missed it, MLSNet.com has a little recap of Beckham's appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday.
