I was extremely unhappy with Mike Petke being fired for jesse Marsch to come in to Red Bull. But the consistency of his results with one of the lowest payrolls in the league speaks for itself. He's obviously a good manager.
That having been said, managing a national team is an entirely different animal than coaching a club team, so who knows. But if we are hiring an American (and David Wagner does not count as an American), he is the one I would want.
