Former United States international Landon Donovan is weighing a run for the presidency of the U.S. Soccer Federation, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. SI.com was first to report Donovan's interest in running for the position. Donovan would become the latest candidate to challenge current USSF president Sunil Gulati, who has held the position for the past 12 years and had never been opposed in any of the previous three elections in which he's run for the federation's top post. Donovan, who is tied with Clint Dempsey for the most goals in U.S. men's national team history, initially retired from professional soccer after the 2015 season, only to make a comeback in 2016. He walked away from the game for good earlier this year and has since done television work for Fox Sports while also involving himself in San Diego's Major League Soccer expansion bid.
