U.S. assistant coach Myernick dies

THORNTON, Colo. -- Glenn Myernick, an assistant coach for the U.S. soccer team and a former head coach of Major League Soccer's Colorado Rapids, died Monday after suffering a heart attack last week. He was 51.

Myernick collapsed Thursday after his regular morning jog and never regained consciousness, said Rapids spokesman Jurgen Mainka.

Mainka said Myernick's wife, Nancy, daughter, Kelly, and son, Travis, were with him when he died.

"Glenn Myernick was a player and coach deeply passionate about soccer and life," U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said in a statement. "Whether it was family, friends or soccer, Mooch was the kind of person that embraced everything in life, loving every minute of it."

Myernick coached the Rapids from 1997-2001, taking them to the Major League Soccer title game in his first year, and coached the U.S. Olympic team from 2002-04, when it failed to qualify for the Athens Games.

A winner of the 1976 Hermann Trophy while at Hartwick College, Myernick made 10 appearances for the U.S. national team from 1975-79.

"We lost a great person today," said former U.S. men's national team coach Bruce Arena. "He was an unbelievable husband and father, and the finest soccer person I've ever come across in the United States. He was an amazing resource for soccer in this country."

Mainka said the family will hold a private funeral to be followed by a celebration of Myernick's life.
