Klinsmann Resigns.

Jurgen Klinsmann, Germany's coach, has resigned his post, according to Fox Soccer Channel and Spigel Online (for those who can read German). His contract was up at the end of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, yet there was a sweeping hope across Germany that he would stay on and lead the side into the EUropean Championships in 2008.

One can spectulate that his twice monthly trans-america/trans-atlantic flights from LAX to Frankfurt took a toll on the guy, as did his being away from his family. Others will speculate that it was the memory of how damn near everyone in Germany wanted Jurgen's head on a plater just two or three months before the WOrld Cup. That 4-1 loss to Italy might have sealed his fate long before he recieved his 3rd place medal.

Let the flood gates open on the speculation on if he becomes the next USMNT coach.
