USA Soccer Names Interim USMNT Coach, Reportedly Will Delay Permanent Hire

There is still no timetable on when the federation will hire Arena's successor, but sources tell Goal that, at the very least, a hire won't be made until after the upcoming U.S. Soccer presidential election in February.

U.S. MNT assistant coach Dave Sarachan and the remainder of the current technical staff will guide the MNT for the final match of 2017, a friendly against third-ranked Portugal on November 14 in Leiria.

The U.S. doesn't have a competitive match until the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup and is expected to overhaul its program during the more than five years it has to prepare for the 2022 World Cup.

That's right, Bruce Arena's long-time assistant coach who has vast experience both in MLS and with the USMNT by Arena's side.

Dave Sarachan will serve as the interim head coach for the U.S. National Team against Portugal next month. For sure he will coach the team for the november 14 friendly against Portugal and it's possible the coaches will hold the annual January camp.

The Americans beat Portugal 3-2 in a first-round group match at the 2002 World Cup on their way to the final eight while they drew 2-2 at Manaus in the 2014 World Cup at Brazil.

The search for Arena's long-term replacement will begin in earnest after the Portugal game, but it remains unclear how long the process will take.

Sarachan, a 63-year-old native New Yorker, has been an assistant for much of his career, mostly under Arena. U.S. Soccer is still considering operating a January national team camp, which has been held annually since 1998.

Sarachan spent decades as an assistant coach under Arena at the University of Virginia, in Major League Soccer and during Arena's two stints leading the national team. The Americans could play a pair of matches during the March FIFA dates.
