Jesse Marsch, the current coach of Red Bull Salzburg, was asked about the possibility of coaching the USMNT in the future. He said that if the US executives at some point offered him to be the USMNT coach he probably could not turn down the offer. Marsch was an assistant coach for the USMNT in 2010

Marsch was very enthusiastic about this possibility as he believes that his idea of soccer fits incredibly with the group of players that the USMNT has today, so it would be a very interesting and fun project for him. The USMNT has players in European soccer like never before, and Marsch knows them very well.

Jesse Marsch in his career as a footballer was a midfielder who after his college career at Princeton University was drafted by DC United. Marsch was the first three-time Major League Soccer Cup champion soccer player, with DC United, Chicago Fire and Chivas USA between 1996 and 2009. Marsch played 321 games in American soccer.

In his coaching career, he has been Bob Bradley's assistant coach at the USMNT until 2011. That same year, Marsch took over as coach of the Montreal Impact, where he remained for 4 years. Then in 2015 he became the coach of the New York Red Bulls where he won the MLS Supporters Shield which led to him being named 'Coach of the Year'. Three years later he joined RB Leipzig in the same role he held at the USMNT, as an assistant coach. And from the 2019-2020 season he became the coach of Red Bull Salzburg in Austria, where he is currently at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga.
