Cameroon's German Coach Offered USMNT Job?

Call this news of the weird, or something. Otto Pfister, head coach of Africa Cup of National finalist Cameroon (they play Egypt in the final tomorrow), told Germany's kicker.de he has been offered the job of U.S. Men's National Team coach. The job has been held by Bob Bradley for over a year. By nearly all accounts, Bradley has done a fine job. Pfister told kicker he would choose between the U.S. job and the South Korea spot, which had also been offered to him, but that he preferred the U.S. one because he wouldn't have to use an interpreter (I'm assuming he speaks English). All a bit bizarre but worth keeping an eye on nonetheless...

  1. Perhaps something is lost in translation here...perhaps he's in line for a technical director type position or maybe he was interviewed for the job back in 2006...but by all accounts, Bob Bradley has the job through 2010.

    Bizzare indeed.
