I happened to watch a few Chicago Fire games when Schweini went there, and I can't say I was particularly impressed by how they were set up.EDIT: Regarding the MLS coaching pipeline, specifically, there is one notable example of an MLS head coach moving to Europe outside of the Red Bull or CFG pipeline. Veljko Paunovic coached Chicago Fire for 4 years and has since been coaching at Reading in the Championship. Despite Paunovic only making the MLS playoffs once in his 4 years there, he was still brought into what is a fairly decent European league at a fairly decent team in Reading. The possibilities are there; it's just about the coaches' ambitions and whether there are enough of them.
Might it be that in Paunovic's case it's not so much his MLS record as maybe his Serbia youth coaching experience and connections?
