How much cash did Klinsmann pocket in 2011?

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.

Among them:

  • 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.
