Former Leeds manager Jesse Marsch is the “clear frontrunner” for the USMNT head coach position according to reports.
Marsch has been out of work since being sacked by Leeds in February following a disappointing second season with the Elland Road side.
According to Men in Red reporter Alex Calabrese, the American is very close to reaching an agreement to take over the country’s national team and is due to take the reins after the CONCACAF Gold Cup set to take place this summer.
