- Bob Bradley
And just like that, Bob Bradley is out as manager of the US Men’s National team. He was relieved of his duties today by the US Soccer Federation. Just totally out of the blue really.
“We want to thank Bob Bradley for his service and dedication to U.S. Soccer during the past five years,” said Gulati. “During his time as the head coach of our Men’s National Team he led the team to a number of accomplishments, but we felt now was the right time for us to make a change. It is always hard to make these decisions, especially when it involves someone we respect as much as Bob. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
An announcement will be made on Friday as to where the USMNT will go next.
Yeah, this new is just shocking but not at all surprising really. More than likely the USSF has someone lined up to replace Bradley. I can’t imagine they’d go into these next friendlies in the fall without a permanent coach in place.
What do you all make of this news? Who do you want to see as the next head coach?
