Los Angeles FC is reportedly set to make a major splash with the club’s first head coaching hire.
According to Goal USA, Bob Bradley is set to join the expansion club as the team’s first head coach. The club is set to begin play in 2018, and they will do so under the leadership of the former U.S. Men’s National Team manager.
The job would be Bradley’s first since he was unceremoniously fired by Premier League club Swansea City after just 85 days and 11 games. Prior to his job in England, Bradley managed Norway’s Stabaek and French second division side Le Havre with great success.
Bradley managed the USMNT from 2006-11, leading the team to the 2007 Gold Cup and a runners-up finish at the 2009 Confederations Cup. After his firing in 2011, Bradley managed the Egyptian national team before turning his sights towards European club soccer.
In terms of an MLS resume, Bradley previously took charge of the Chicago Fire, Chivas USA and the Metrostars. He won an MLS Cup and two U.S. Open Cups while in charge of the Fire.
