Former Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan has emerged as a possible successor to Scott Johnson as coach of the USA team. Australian Johnson, formerly caretaker Wales boss, is leaving the Americans at the end of the season to take over at Welsh club Ospreys. O'Sullivan was in charge of the US Eagles before becoming Ireland's assistant coach in 1999. He won three Triple Crowns as Irish boss and has recently made two coaching trips to the United States. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/rugby_unio...ish/7862583.stm It would be a good appointment in my opinion. O'Sullivan know the US system already and has a solid coaching pedigree. Given the fact that he doesn't seem to be considered for any major European coaching gig, the US job may prove the next best option. With Mark McCall and Jeremy Davidson losing their jobs with Castres at the end of the season, he'd have a pair of possible assistant coaches who he knows and rates highly to take with him.
