While the men's side seems to be slow to hiring and hiring unpopular choices, the women's general manager Kate Markgraf appears to be moving quicker. January 3 Laura Harvey was announced as the U20 coach and yesterday Matt Potter was announced as the U23 coach. Anyone care to comment on these two coaches and their qualifications? Both look good on paper. I know Harvey was tossed around as a possibility for the USWNT head coach job by pundits. I am not sure if she was interviewed for that post. Apparently Potter was scouting the opponents for the World Cup this year for us. Both coaches are originally from England.

Don't know much about Potter, but the little I know about Harvey is from her days at Seattle Reign and then Utah Royals. I do remember her playing with the women's side for the Wolves of the premier league. I believe she was successful at Seattle and maybe coached 2 or 3 named USWNT while she was there. I think it's a good hire having been through and a part of high level facets of the game on the women's side...
