    Hard to argue against that decision. All the men’s program has done since he has been around is fail to qualify. Men’s World Cup a couple times, the Olympics a couple times, the U20 World Cup 5 times. We got in the pan am games as host, but did nothing there. I think maybe the U17 team has qualified in his era, but probably not since he became director in 2011. I don’t know for sure off the top of my head.
