    Per ESPN

    Sunil Gulati, the longtime president of U.S. Soccer, will not seek another term as head of the federation, he told ESPN.

    "I spent a lot of time thinking about it, and talking about it with people in many different positions -- many of whom told me I should run," Gulati said on Monday. "But in the end, I think the best thing for me personally, and for the federation, is to see someone new in the job."

    Love him or Hate him.....you have to respect him for recognizing his time is over. It's never easy to walk away from anything, give him credit for making it easy on his replacement.

    But he's still a pompous narcissist in his exit, arguing that people say he should still be there::
    "I spent a lot of time thinking about it, and talking about it with people in many different positions -- many of whom told me I should run..."

    I would have respected him if he had simply said the second sentence: " I think the best thing for me personally, and for the federation, is to see someone new in the job."

    Should have resigned immediately after the loss to Trinidad & Tobago.

    So who should replace him? Do we bring back Tom Byer?
