Bermuda Shorts

Keith Tucker, who was fired by Howard University in January after 26 seasons, is in final negotiations to become head coach of Bermuda's national team, sources said today. Tucker is a native of Bermuda who returned to live there this year. Bermuda will enter the early stage of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying next year. The soccer association is also in search of a technical director.

The last time the U.S. team played Bermuda was in February 1991: Bermuda 1, USA 0. As I recall, that was Bob Gansler's final game in charge of the American squad. The U.S. lineup was Meola; Agoos, Balboa, Banks, Dayak; Krumpe, Dufrene, Kinnear, Murray; Wynalda, Vermes.

Go Triangles!

Goff: Arena and Clavijo want to know if you have the fax number for that technical director opening.

On a somewhat related note, it's sad that CONCACAF is as poor as it is soccer-wise. There's only two leagues in this region who have the resources (or potential resources) to develop the potential talent that is here in this confederation, MLS and the Mexican league. MLS doesn't have the resources (yet) to fully develop our own domestic talent, besides finding and developing foreign talent, and the Mexican league isn't interested in developing CONCACAF talent with the massive population size they have in Mexico.
If the two leauges here had the ability and will to do so, there'd be no reason why CONCACAF couldn't be on almost on par with the CAF in terms of talent produced.

Why would one leave Bermuda in the first place?

Wasn't Dufrene incarcerated in Shawshank prison for a while?

Good for Coach Tucker. I saw him several times at Crystal Palace Baltimore games after he was let go at Howard. He was checking up on former players, still offering them support and seemed to be enthusiastic about supporting the club. I had no idea that he was in conversation with the BFA.

When the USL2 Bermuda Hogges club came he had the chance to see some of the guys that he will be calling up to play for the national team. I never thought about the fact that he could be doing some scouting for his future position.

'There certainly is interest in a high-profile, sexy type of candidate - not simply because this is the Galaxy and this is Los Angeles, but because we are looking to bring in somebody who can do something different with the Galaxy from the results we have come to know.'

Resources will also not be an issue, according to Lalas.

When will someone fire him. He is turning American soccer into a joke.

It's crazy expensive since almost everything must be imported, and the jobs aren't great. That said, coaching a Bermuda National Team for soccer is probably the second best job on the island after the head coaching job for cricket.
