The U.S. men’s national team has announced the firing of head coach Gregg Berhalter following their shock elimination from the 2024 Copa America in the group stage. The team’s early exit from the tournament, which included a loss to Panama and Uruguay, has led to a decision to part ways with Berhalter just two years before the team hosts the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Berhalter, who had been in charge for five years, expressed his gratitude to the U.S. Soccer Federation in a statement, acknowledging the disappointment of the Copa America result and taking full responsibility for the team’s performance.

During his tenure, Berhalter struggled to secure top-tier victories outside of dominating rival Mexico. The search for a new coach is now underway, with names like Jose Mourinho, Joachim Low, Zinedine Zidane, and Jurgen Klopp being mentioned as potential candidates to lead the team into a new era of on-field success.

U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone thanked Berhalter for his dedication to the team and emphasized the importance of finding the right person to maximize the team’s potential as they prepare for the 2026 World Cup.

The decision to relieve Berhalter of his duties has sparked speculation among fans about who will be chosen as the next head coach. With a strong pool of candidates available, the search for a new leader is now a top priority for U.S. Soccer as they look to steer the team in a new direction following the disappointment of the Copa America campaign.
