In the Bob Bradley press conference call following the Copa America announcement, Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union Tribune asked Bob Bradley straight out if his interim status had changed in any way, noting that the national team's press officer had introduced him as the "US coach".
Bradley paused a little awkwardly before comfirming that his status was the same as ever.
I asked the question about what Bradley thought of Argentina and got a very detailed response about the squad's merits and what the U.S. will have to do to counteract that. It's just strange to think that Bradley might not be around to actually put that plan into place.
It's got to affect the players as well, too, wondering if everything they're learned and focused on under Bradley is going to be tossed out the window if and when another coach comes along.
Even just writing about Bradley, it's a hassle to keep putting "interim" everywhere to be strictly accurate. He's the coach for now, and the same could probably be said of many coaches. Like for example, if Hugo Sanchez keeps losing.
