Kudos to Washington Post writer Steven Goff for digging into some tax records for the US Soccer Federation between April 2011 and March 2012, and discovering a few interesting financial nuggets.
- US men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann (above, left) collected $1,047,172 — a portion of his $2.5 million salary. He was hired late in the summer of 2011. Klinsmann’s contract runs through Aug. 31, 2014.
- Former head coach Bob Bradley, meanwhile, received $872,658, despite being fired four months into the tax period.
- US women's coach Pia Sundhage earned $299,190 while on the job during the entire tax period, which included a runner-up finish in the 2011 World Cup.
