    Very sad news. The best to his family.

  2. USA2010 says:

    A big loss for soccer in the USA. He was a real pioneer who contributed to the growth of soccer in this country on many levels (including the highest – in the World Cup).

    My prayers go out to him and his family.

    Rest in peace, Mooch.
