Former Mexico boss Miguel Herrera open to coaching the United States

The future of United States men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann appears to be safe, but one man who would consider taking over should the German be relieved of his duties is everyone's favorite sideline superstar, Miguel Herrera.

Speaking with ESPN Deportes' Raza Deportiva on Wednesday morning, the former Mexico boss, who is reportedly learning English, said he would most certainly listen if an offer from U.S. Soccer presented itself.

"When you don't have a job, you have to listen to job offers, and if the United States is one and I don't have a job, without a doubt I will listen," Herrera said.

While the thought of seeing one of Herrera's legendary goal celebrations after a Clint Dempsey strike is appealing, Herrera stressed that he has heard nothing from U.S. Soccer.

"There hasn't been a call or any approach. But to reiterate, I'm calmly waiting for a project that is attractive to me and so I can return to work," Herrera said.
