U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati announced today that Bob Bradley has been relieved of his duties as the head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team.
“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.”
Not surprised by this move. After that disappointing 4-2 loss to Mexico in the Gold Cup final. The U.S. was leading the match 2-0 but allow Mexico to score four straight goals.
But Bradley shouldn’t feel too bad about his career as the Men’s Soccer Team head coach.
During his five-year tenure he compiled a 43-25-12 record. I believe Bradley took this team as far as he could. Its time to bring in someone who can lead the Men’s Soccer Team to a World Cup Final.
