Fresh Start — One popular fan criticism of Bob Bradley was the fact that his son affected his gameplanning and made it unfair for the rest of the midfield. No matter what your opinions on the whole Bradley debacle may be, you must agree that bringing in a foreign coach avoids these sticky situations and at least shows that there are no biases or prejudices with the roster.
Foreign Influence — By far the most attractive characteristic of a foreign coach is the possible overseas youth connections he could have that could bring in the next hybrid-American superstar. Since Klinsmann has arrived, we have already seen German-Americans Timothy Chandler and Fabian Johnson commit their future to the United States with plenty more dual-citizenship players possibly still on the mend. It excites fans to see players CHOOSE to play for the United States, and a foreign coach could certainly influence enough talent to keep supporters happy for a while.
Foreign Ideas — Foreign coaches can bring in their respective soccer culture and thrust it upon the national team, providing a change of pace and letting the players explore a new style. New ideas let players see the game differently and develop their soccer IQ.
