Who do you think they should have chosen instead? Bearing in mind they want an american to raise his profile there. Although I think he shouldn't be facing another old guy, looking at who else is available from the USA it's not such a bad choice.
Remember he is not looking to go straight from Thompson in Wlad, it is a decent transition from where he is now to a top ten contender or 2 then to wlad.
