Thomas Dooley could soon step back into the ranks of international soccer as the head coach of the Philippines national team.

Dooley, 52, has been retired since 2000 when he finished his playing career with the Metrostarts. Before that, he played for German clubs Homburg, Kaiserslautern, Bayer Leverkusen, and Schalke. He then came to play in MLS in 1997 when he joined the Columbus Crew.

From 1992-1999 he played for the United States despite being born in Germany and living nearly his whole life there. He was a member of the 1994 World Cup team and captained the 1998 squad in France.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that members of the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) will meet with Dooley this week in California to discuss his ideas about the national team. The next major tournament for the Philippines is the AFC Challenge Cup in May but the Inquirer reports that the PFF wants to select a new coach by the end of January.
