Gulati Must Go–And US Soccer Needs a Full Restructuring After World Cup Qualifying Failure

In the wake of the U.S. men’s national team’s embarrassing failure to qualify for World Cup 2018, the push for an overhaul of the U.S. Soccer Federation will be stronger than ever from fans, from media and from American soccer stakeholders who’ve invested millions of dollars in the growth of the sport—including USSF sponsors like Nike, Coca-Cola and Budweiser, MLS owners and television rights-holders like Fox Sports, ESPN and Univision.

That’s as it should be. A massive reboot needs to happen in a federation that has too often been opaque, insular and woefully resistant to change over the years, and it has to start at the top with the replacement of U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati.

It’s time. Gulati has been the president since 2006, and as coincidence would have it, the next election for a new president is in February. Recently enacted term limit rules would allow Gulati to run for one more term, but he would be wise to announce as soon as possible that he will not seek another four years.
