Schmid reacts to Bradley firing, hasn’t been contacted for job

Here is some quick reaction to the firing of Bob Bradley (see post below) from Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid in a teleconference this afternoon.

* * *

(Have you heard about the news?) “I’m just reading it now. Obviously coaching the national team is a difficult thing. Bob had a run here that was just under six years or so — five years plus — and it’s difficult. I don’t know with U.S. Soccer what’s going on in their thought process or what they’re looking at, because obviously now they’ve got some games coming up and they need to put somebody in place. But that’s something that they have to worry about. I have to worry about the Seattle Sounders and our game with Houston on Saturday.”

(Are you interested in the job?) “That’s something that I really don’t need to answer because nobody’s talked to me. I think any coach in this country, especially someone who’s coached in America for a long time, would have an interest in coaching the national team. I think that’s going to be a ‘yes’ answer from any American coach that you ask, but at the end of the day is it the right thing? Is it the right time? Where are you coming from? Where are you at? All that affects that ultimate decision. What I can tell you is I’m very happy where I’m at. I love the Sounders, I love Seattle and I really like our team.”
