He's got to be a top three option for that job at the moment. Earnie Stewart's ties to the Union also mean he's well aware of Jesse and will have a strong opinion (good or bad) about him taking over USA.
Part of me thinks that the Marsch rumors were true, but that Stewart swooped in and will poach Jesse. Not likely of course, but given US Soccer's systemic problems, appointing someone like Jesse makes sense. Look at what our club has done with player development, both with the academy and RBII. Klinsmann said we needed an identity, but, as far as I can tell, did nothing to advance that aim. I think the athletic, high-press style definitely suits American players. Will be interesting to see what happens.
