Potential USF Football Coaching Candidates: Arsene Wenger

New, 18 comments

Looking for consistent excellence, even on a budget? Look no further than North London.

In every coaching search, there’s always somebody suggesting ridiculous candidates for the job. Instead of waiting for those wack ideas to come to us, we’re being proactive and bringing our wack ideas to you.


Arsene Wenger (current job: manager, Arsenal Football Club)

The football coaching legend has had a lot of success overseas, coaching Arsenal to three Premier League titles, a Champions League final, and six FA Cups. Another offensive coaching choice, the Frenchman is not exactly the most flexible coach of all time, but he’s going to stick with his principles. Luckily for him, he’d be inheriting the offense to make it work. You know he’d enjoy having some Florida speed on the wings to get send those long balls downfield (nothing new there). Chances are he’ll let field manager Q keep going end to end and let him make his plays. Possible changes? How about more double-back formations with Mack and Johnson flanking Q in the gun? It would be similar to Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka in Wenger’s current formation.

It might be difficult to pry Wenger away from the Gunners, seeing he’s the longest serving manager in the Premier League as well as Arsenal’s longest-tenured manager, at 20 years and counting. However, he’ll be up for contract renewal at the end of this season. If Arsenal doesn’t re-up him soon, this might be the perfect time to try to entice him with a change of scenery and a new challenge of continuing to build USF to the top, rather than just spin his wheels in the top four as he’s been doing for the past decade or so.

On a serious note, we still need a new men’s soccer coach...............
