US Under-17 coach Wilmer Cabrera to leave

U.S. Under-17 soccer coach Wilmer Cabrera is leaving after 41/2

seasons, the latest shake-up since Jurgen Klinsmann was hired to

run the national team.

Cabrera coached the Americans to the second round of the 2009

and 2011 FIFA Under-17 World Cups. The U.S. Soccer Federation said

in a statement Tuesday that his departure was by mutual agreement

and he will stay on through the end of the month.

Klinsmann, a former German national team star and coach,

replaced Bob Bradley in July. Akron’s Caleb Porter was hired in

October as coach of the Under-23 team as it tries to qualify for

the London Olympics, and former American national team star Tab

Ramos replaced Thomas Rongen as the Under-20 coach.
