Bob Bradley is officially back in the coaching game.

Having been rumored to take over as head coach of Egypt's national team, Bradley has completed his move to coach the Pharoahs. Bradley flew to Cairo and met with Egyptian federation (EFA) officials to finalize the details of his contract on Wednesday, and the federation announced the deal was completed on its website on Thursday.

Details of the deal are expected to be announced on Saturday, Sept. 24 during a press conference that will follow the draw for the final round of African qualifying for the 2012 Olympics.

According to one report, Bradley's contract will run until the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Bradley is reportedly going to make $40.4 thousand per month.

The EFA is still negotiating with Bradley over who will be on his assistant coaching staff, but it is likely to include former U.S. men's national team goalkeepers coach Zak Abdel, who is a former Egyptian national team goalkeeper and has worked with Bradley on the U.S. team and Chivas USA.
