Bob Bradley steps down as LAFC coach after four seasons

LAFC and Bob Bradley, the sole manager of the MLS franchise, parted ways after four seasons. The team confirmed Thursday that Bradley, the third-highest scoring coach in league history, was out after missing the playoffs in his fourth season.

Bradley led the LAFC to the Supporters’ Shield title in 2019 when the team posted the best regular season record in league history to date. The LAFC, hampered by injuries to MVP striker Carlos Vel, and top midfielder and defender Edouard Atuesta and Eddie Segura, respectively, finished 12-13-9 and ninth in the Western Conference table in 2021.

The coach led the LAFC to a 58-34-32 record and 206 points in his four years, winning the Supporter’s Shield in season two, when the team hit the MLS record with 85 goals. The LAFC reached the CONCACAF Champions League final last season, becoming the first MLS team to defeat three Liga MX clubs in a single tournament.

Bradley, 63, coached the Chicago Fire to claim the MLS title in the first season of 1998 before leaving for the national team, taking the United States to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He also coached the Egyptian national team during qualifying for the 2014 World Cup. As a club coach, he worked at Norwegian Stabek, French second-division club Le Havre and in 2016 at Swansea City, becoming the only American to rule the English Premier League.

He is a three-time MLS Coach of the Year and is second only to former Galaxy managers Bruce Arena and Sigi Schmid on the league’s record of victories.
