WHAT THEY SAID: "I've taken some time out for myself over the last couple of months and it's been a good chance to reflect on aspects of life while in Leeds," Marsch said. "I'm very proud of our achievements like staying up in 21/22 and when I look back on my time at Leeds, I'll think of that with great pride.
"I'm also grateful to have worked with a great group of players and staff and to have met some fantastic people in Yorkshire. I'm taking some time to consider the right next step but until then, I'll be enjoying time with family & friends."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Marsch has been linked with the U.S. men's national team job, although a decision on that won't be made until after the U.S. Soccer settles on a sporting director. For now, it appears he'll wait until at least the summer to assess what opportunities will be available.
