USSF to Name New Women's Coach: Sundhage

The U.S. Soccer Federation will formally introduce the new women's national soccer team coach Tuesday afternoon. One source tells me the choice is Pia Sundhage, Sweden's all-time leading scorer who coached the Boston Breakers in the WUSA and most recently was an assistant on the Chinese coaching staff. She interviewed for the U.S. job three years ago, but was passed over for Greg Ryan, who was not retained after the Americans' lackluster showing at the World Cup this fall. Sundhage, 47, is the first foreign head coach in U.S. women's national team history and the second woman. USSF President Sunil Gulati headed the search committee, which also included federation secretary general Dan Flynn and retired superstar Mia Hamm. Gulati and USSF spokesman Jim Moorhouse declined comment on the Insider's exclusive report that Sundhage had been hired.

More to come Tuesday.....
