The former West Ham and Sunderland boss had his Three Lions rein cut short on Tuesday after just 67 days in the job and it's thought he is already eyeing a move to Major League Soccer.
A former colleague told the Daily Mirror: “If someone gave him an opportunity in the States he'd struggle to turn it down.
“And the way he feels right now I don't think he'd be too bothered about turning his back on England."
The 61-year-old played just 11 matches for the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the summer of 1983 but described his brief stint in the USA as a 'life changing experience'.
“Sam has spoken a lot about his time in Tampa," continued the source. “He loved it and it really opened his eyes.
“It's still early days yet, but he hasn't ruled out a return to football and he would love to give it a crack over there in the US."
