U.S. Soccer to name Stewart USMNT general manager

Former midfielder Earnie Stewart was hired Wednesday as general manager of the US men's national soccer team, likely delaying the search for a new coach.

Stewart, who while in Philly formed close bonds with head coach Jim Curtin and technical director Chris Albright, spoke often of "collaboration", both with the new coach and with the higher-ups, including the person he'll report to, U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn. Sarachan took over following the resignation of Bruce Arena, who quit after the USA failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Stewart, who will start his position on August 1, said he hoped to "create a winning culture in the U.S. men's national team". Stewart, 49, played more than 100 games for the United States and appeared in three World Cups.

Stewart takes over a newly created position that will lead the search for the next USA coach. "It's process over speed".

We will have more to come as this story develops. A U.S. Soccer presidential election filled with conspiracy theories, infighting and political back-channel dealing did little to dissuade fears that the system was broken.

We see that they have huge potential in doing senior management positions, ' he said. His comments met with loud groans of disapproval from many journalists in the room.

"We have a tremendous amount of young talent and passion in the USA, and I'm ready to jump in, hire a new head coach and build a culture of success, with the ultimate goal of the USA men's national team becoming a world champion".

Dave Sarachan is now serving as caretaker coach of the USA national team. Even though Stewart plans to help implement a certain style of play, the coach will still have "autonomy with that style of play to play different formations", he said.

"U.S. Soccer had questions for me but I also had questions for U.S. Soccer", Stewart said.

The U.S. faced a similar situation in 1998, when veterans sniped at coach Steve Sampson over reduced playing time and the Americans finished last at the 32-nation World Cup. "The style is more - goes towards the values of what we want to see on the field from our players", he said. Arena was hired and led the U.S.to the 2002 quarterfinals, the best result for the Americans since the first World Cup in 1930.

"When I look at the talent in the United States and, more recently, here with the Philadelphia Union in the academy we have, I think a lot of times it's underestimated", he said. Nuttall handled numerous team's administrative tasks in the run-up to the 1994 World Cup.
