Bruce Arena is a Hall of Famer

Ex-USMNT coach and current boss of the L.A. Galaxy Bruce Arena was inducted into the U.S. National Soccer Hall of Fame on Saturday.
"It's certainly a great individual accomplishment, yet you never forget why you're able to achieve things as a coach," he said. "During my career, there's been hundreds of people responsible for my being successful -- players, coaches, management, administration, all of that. You can't forget that."
He took an American side to the quarterfinals of the 2002 World Cup, and they could've gone farther if a certain handball had been called.

He's pretty much been successful at every level and wherever he's gone.

It's a deserved honor, even though I've given him some flack over the years.
