Kasey Keller- Next Sounders head coach?

Call me crazy, call me an idiot, call me whatever you want. I'm throwing the name out there for a few reasons.

1. Sigi has lost control of this team, and unless he rights the ship and the Sounders make a deep playoff run, he is out.

2. Keller is the man. He's a local legend and soccer icon. How cool would it be to have him running the show?

3. This team has lacked a leader since Keller left. I contend Keller was in charge of this team when he was here, not Sigi. The players respected and listened to him. Bring him back and he will get that same respect from them and get the most out of them.

4. Keller has played at the highest level. Playing overseas and for the National team, this guy has seen and done it all. There is no replacement for experience. Nothing in the MLS would surprise or rattle him. His knowledge of the game and experience as a captain would make him a great head coach.

5. He has already shown his desire to coach. Working with the national team this year showed us that he has the itch to get out there as a coach. He may not have head coaching experience, but he would take over as head coach of this team seamlessly. It's only a matter of time before he does get a head coaching gig. Why not make it here with the team and city that loves him?

6. Players would want to come play for him. His name is known to everyone in America who plays soccer. Kids grew up idolizing him and would want a chance to play for him. Our fans are the best and that already attracts players here. Add an American legend as your coach and players are gonna be flocking here.

7. Did I mention he's from here and it would be an amazing story?

I know making Keller the head coach is a long shot, but hey since the team is in the gutter atm, we might as well start dreaming about who we would like to see guiding the ship next year.
