Bruce Arena and Avram Grant are on a two-man shortlist to become the new USA coach, according to Sky Sports.
LA Galaxy boss Arena is the favourite to replace Jurgen Klinsmann, who was sacked yesterday.
Arena was the USA head coach from 1998 to 2006 and led his country to two World Cups.
Grant is the other candidate after impressing the US Soccer Federation with the job he has done managing Ghana.
Grant led Ghana to the final of last year’s African Cup of Nations, where they were beaten on penalties by Ivory Coast.
The former Portsmouth and West Ham United manager also led Chelsea to the final of the 2008 Champions League final where the Blues lost on penalties to Man Utd in Moscow.
The German, who was appointed to the role in 2011, led the US to the Round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
