LOS ANGELES — Bob Bradley will be the first coach of the Los Angeles Football Club, the MLS expansion franchise due to begin play next year, the club announced Friday.
Bradley is the former coach of the U.S. men’s national team and the most successful American coach in international soccer history. He became the first U.S. coach to lead a Premiership team last season, although his rocky tenure with Swansea City lasted just 11 games.
Bradley coached MLS clubs Chicago, the MetroStars and Chivas USA before leading the U.S. from 2006-11.
Bradley then coached in Egypt, Norway and France before taking over Swansea last season.
