Bob Bradley, the head coach of the men's national soccer team, has been fired just one year after renewing his contract to continue coaching through 2014!
U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulat said in a statement:
"We want to thank Bob Bradley for his service and dedication to U.S. Soccer during the past five years. 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."
After taking over the position in 2007, Bradley's record is 43-25-12 overall and helped lead the team to the Round of 16 during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
We hope the change will at least bring about a longer run, if not a total victory, at the next men's World Cup!
