I can think of a couple that can be argued for the top spot themselves or at least can't be discounted;
• Bora was unconventional, but the fact he guided the team to the knockout rounds when the entire WORLD mocked us, thought the WC would be a disaster, and predicted we would be the first host country to be eliminated in the group stages in 1994 has to be considered.
• The poster boy for NOT having a coach for a 2nd WC cycle, Bruce Arena. How it ended wasn't great, but even in that massive failure the '06 team did draw w/the eventual World Champions. 2002 is the watershed moment in USMNT history by not only getting to the Quarterfinal, but by totally outplaying the Germans that day (don't get me started on the handball!!). The US lost the match, but gained the respect of the footballing world.
