THE ROTHENBERG FILES: LEGACY KICKED AROUND AS TERM ENDS
Published August 19, 1998
The U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) will choose President Alan Rothenberg's successor on Saturday, and the "new boss will be just as obscure as his predecessor eight years ago," according to Steve Davis of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Either Bob Contiguglia or Larry Monaco will be named President during meetings this weekend in Maui. Contiguglia "is a practicing kidney specialist in Denver" who spent six years as U.S. Youth Soccer Association Chair. He lost the '84 U.S. Soccer presidential race. Monaco has been a U.S. Soccer Exec VP for four years, and spent 19 years as a staff attorney for the U.S. House of Representatives. Davis writes, "The candidates' platforms look similar. Both promise to provide more local-level support for the sport's" participants (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 8/19). Rothenberg's legacy as USSF President is examined by Rodney Sieh of the K.C. STAR, who writes, "Soccer in America has come a long way in eight years. ... [It] has enjoyed unprecedented growth during Rothenberg's reign, thanks to a multimillion surplus from the 1994 World Cup and subsequent sponsorship agreements" (Rodney Sieh, K.C. STAR, 8/19). NEW COO: The USSF named Tom King its COO. King had been GM of the USSF's National Teams Program (USSF).
