Gregg Berhalter, Coach of US Men’s National Soccer Team, Terminated

U.S. Men’s National Soccer Coach Gregg Berhalter Fired by U.S. Soccer Federation

The U.S. men’s national soccer team is facing a major shakeup as head coach Gregg Berhalter has been fired, officials announced. The decision comes after the team’s recent 1-0 loss to Uruguay in the Copa América tournament.

In a statement released by the U.S. Soccer Federation, it was revealed that Berhalter had been “relieved of his duties … effective immediately.” U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone expressed gratitude for Berhalter’s hard work and dedication but emphasized the need to find the right person to lead the team to on-field success in the future.

Matt Crocker, the U.S. Soccer Sporting Director, has already begun the search for Berhalter’s replacement. Despite the sudden departure, Crocker praised Berhalter for his contributions over the past five years and his role in moving the team forward.

Berhalter, who initially served as head coach from 2018 to 2022 before being rehired in 2023, leaves behind a record of 44-17-13 in 74 matches, including a 29-9-7 record in official competitions. Under his leadership, the team qualified for the 2022 World Cup and won the 2021 Gold Cup along with two Concacaf Nations League titles.

The firing of Berhalter marks a significant moment for U.S. soccer and fans will be eagerly awaiting news of who will step in to lead the team into a new era of competition and success.
