Throwing out the baby with the bath water- if not Bob Bradley, then who

I would put a target over his face, as it seems that many have him on a hit list, but I am way too classy for that.

So the interweb thingy is all a buzz today with Bob Bradley retiring from the USMNT, going to Aston Villa, and various other versions.

I don't count myself a Bradley fan or a hater, I think he did a good job of getting the US to win the Gold Cup, come in second at the Confederations Cup, and make it to the round of 16 at the World Cup.  I know that many people want him to go, it seems like around the world most national teams dismiss their coaches every 4-8 years, but I am left with one huge question.

If not Bob, then who?

I know some of you are going to think that we are going to sign Jürgen Klinsmann, but if he turned US Soccer down the last time, what makes you think he would take it this time?

So then who? Come on if you want Bob to be gone, then you need to offer up some real name of people who have a better resume than he does in the last 4 years.  No pipe dreams of coaches who wouldn't give the US a second look, none of the coaches that want to run the whole show, we know that Sunil Gulati, isn't going to give up any power or control.

So pipe in with some names, come one.
