CSA needs patience in hiring new men’s coach
It has been less than 100 days since former Canadian national team head coach Stephen Hart stepped down after a disastrous exit during World Cup qualifying, and the Canadian Soccer Association appears to be in no rush to name a successor.
Nor should they be.
With a pair of friendlies set for later this month against Denmark and the United States, and the only other competition on the horizon being the Gold Cup this summer, the CSA should take all the time it wants. In fact, it shouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that it waits until after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil to name the new man in charge.
That suggestion may send a few reeling, aghast at the thought of the national program being rudderless for so long, but it comes down to a matter of priorities.
