Jimmy Conrad is currently head coach of the San Francisco Glens in USL League Two. In the first episode of our 2020 SF Glens Webinar Series, he will dive into what it takes to develop a style of play on the defensive end.
As a player, Jimmy earned 28 caps with the U.S. Men’s National Team from 2005 through 2010 and helped anchor the back line as a starter in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. On the club level, he played 13 seasons in Major League Soccer for the San Jose Earthquakes, Sporting Kansas City, and Chivas USA, earning the MLS Defender of the Year award in 2005, the MLS Humanitarian of the Year award in 2009, and MLS Best XI honors four times. He was also selected to appear in six MLS All-Star Games and spent a stint at Lech Poznán in Poland.
Jimmy’s teams have won at every level; he retired in 2011 as one of a select few American players to have won a CONCACAF Gold Cup, an MLS Cup, a U.S. Open Cup, an NCAA National Championship, and an Under-20 Club Championship.
