U.S. soccer salaries, bonuses: Bob Bradley, Pia Sundhage, Thomas Rongen, Jozy Altidore, Brad Guzan, Dan Flynn

By Steve Goff

More details to share from the latest U.S. Soccer Federation tax documents, which cover March 31, 2009, through April 1, 2010:

U.S. men's national team coach Bob Bradley earned $818,244 -- about $600,000 in base salary and marketing compensation and the rest in bonuses for Confederations Cup and World Cup qualifying achievements.

Women's coach Pia Sundhage: $219,635.

Men's under-20/youth coach Thomas Rongen: $159,821.

All U.S. men's players who were with the squad for the Confederations Cup or World Cup qualifying cycle received bonuses. The biggest earners in 2009-10: Forward Jozy Altidore and reserve goalkeeper Brad Guzan at $150,639 apiece because they either played or were included on the game-day roster most often. The others were not listed.

USSF chief executive Dan Flynn earned $583,554. Federation President Sunil Gulati is not compensated by the USSF.

Federation President Sunil Gulati is not compensated by the USSF.

And worth every penny. Just kidding, I am neutral on Gulati, but the opportunity for snark should not go begging.

Whatever one thinks of him, Gulati is not in it for the money. Which is odd, for an economist.

Does anyone doubt for a minute that Gulati isn't making his money "off the books" with his relationship with FIFA through the federation?

Wow. Noq I know why getting national team call-ups mean so much to the players.

Bradley could afford to dress better.

Way to go Notorious BEG (government name-- Bradley Edwin Guzan)

Get those papers, kid!

Sometimes being the #2 ain't such a bad life, huh?

Are Brad and Jozy's $150,639 their total earnings with the Nats *including* their bonuses, or is that figure for their bonuses alone?

Yes, I doubt it. Call me naive, but I sincerely doubt Gulati is on the take. Do you have some reason to believe he is? And that there's significant money to be made there? Does Honduras give him kick-backs to schedule a friendly? Yeah, right.

NOOOO! Clint, WTF!!!!

Posted by: UnitedDemon1 | February 14, 2011 4:54 PM | Report abuse

Wow.

Posted by: DadRyan | February 14, 2011 4:55 PM | Report abuse

No, at work. Wha happen?

Too bad Clint couldn't channel a little Landon at that moment...

The beautiful game. In the 90th minute, you're thrilled with a draw. By the end of extra time, you're heartbroken with that same result.

Missed PK.

@FulhamDC So true!

I didn't wanna spoil it. The silence around here was eerie. Clint has been the hero before, and that would have truly been INSANE had he made it or the follow up, but still... it was still a thrilling match for the most part and a prime case example of an 0-0 draw that left many needing to change their pantaloons afterward.
For soccer naysayers, and folks who already know what's up that match would be well worth watching an archived replay.

Who'z ready for Champions League? We do have a fantasy league on UEFA.com right?
I'm gonna be up later than I'd planned this evening. ;)

And Rand, you must have forgotten Donovan's MLS Cup 2009 shoot out bid...
