Ryan was 45-1-9 since taking over in early 2005, but that one loss -- in his only major tournament -- overshadowed the rest of his tenure.
He had 1 loss in his tenure with the national team, and gets fired. Fired by the same guy who handles the USMNT, so not really surprised. He was the guy that fired Bruce Arena for Bob Bradley...while he could've hired Jose Pekerman or anyone else.
