Word is beginning to get around soccer circles that John Hackworth is out after three years in charge of the U.S. under-17 boys' program in Bradenton. The Americans struggled to advance out of group play at the World Cup in South Korea in August and was eliminated by Germany in the round of 16. According to two sources, Hackworth will be offered a job elsewhere in the USSF, possibly an administrative role in the new academy system. If he turns it down, he might end up waiting for a college job to open this winter. He coached at the University of South Florida before joining John Ellinger's U-17 staff in 2002.
