U.S. Soccer records show Klinsmann made $3.2M in 2014 fiscal year

Thursday January 21st, 2016

U.S. men's national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann earned $3,207,110 in reportable compensation and another $25,371 in funds from the USSF and related groups from April 2014 to March 2015, according to records posted by the U.S. Soccer Federation on Wednesday.

Klinsmann helped the United States reach the round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup in 2014. His contract runs through the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

In the previous fiscal year, Klinsmann earned more than $2.5 million, the largest haul for a national team coach in USSF history.

The big picture: MLS vs. abroad

Last year, Klinsmann and the USMNT finished fourth in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and failed to qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.

The USMNT has moved forward with World Cup qualifying as it defeated St. Vincent and the Grenadines 5–1 and pulled a 0–0 draw against Trinidad and Tobago.

USWNT head coach Jill Ellis was not listed among the USSF’s top earners.
