Gregg Berhalter fired by U.S. Soccer Federation

U.S. Soccer Federation Fires Men’s National Team Coach Gregg Berhalter

The U.S. Soccer Federation made a shocking announcement on Wednesday, revealing the immediate firing of men’s national team coach Gregg Berhalter following a disappointing performance in the recent COPA group stage in Atlanta. The team’s losses to Uruguay and Panama resulted in their elimination from the competition and ultimately led to Berhalter’s dismissal.

U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone expressed gratitude for Berhalter’s dedication but emphasized the need to find a new leader to guide the team to success. Sporting Director Matt Crocker will spearhead the search for a replacement, with potential candidates like Jose Mourinho, Joachim Low, and Zinedine Zidane being considered.

The decision to part ways with Berhalter came after a thorough 10-day review process involving key stakeholders in the organization. Despite Berhalter’s five-year tenure, the team struggled to secure victories against top-tier opponents, raising concerns among fans and prompting calls for a coaching change.

With preparations for the 2026 World Cup already in sight, the focus now shifts to finding a capable coach who can steer the U.S. men’s national team towards a new era of success on the international stage. Stay tuned for updates on the search for Berhalter’s replacement and the team’s future prospects.
