Brazil to ask former coaches to help improve local football

SAO PAULO (AP) -- The Brazilian football confederation says it will summon former national team coaches to help find ways of improving football in the country after a series of disappointing results.

The confederation's announcement that it will form a counsel of former coaches comes less than a week after Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Copa America for the second consecutive time. It's also less than a year since Brazil's worst loss ever, a 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semifinals of the World Cup on home soil.

Gilmar Rinaldi, the confederation official who oversees the national team, said Wednesday in an interview with SporTV that foreign coaches, former world champions and media representatives will also be called up to join the discussion.
