Bob Bradley's tenure as head coach of the United States' men's national soccer team came to an end on Thursday, as he was informed by U.S. Soccer that he will not be retained. In addition, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati was also relieved of duty.
"We want to thank Bob Bradley for his service and dedication to U.S. Soccer during the past five years," Gulati said in a statement. "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." (via Boston Globe)
Bradley compiled a record of 43-25-12 since taking over the men's national team in 2007. He led the United States men to the Round of 16 in the 2010 World Cup before being eliminated by Ghana.
