Gregg Berhalter

Gregg Berhalter has been rehired as the head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team (USMNT), U.S. Soccer announced on Friday. The decision comes after a six-month search for a new head coach.

Berhalter, who previously led the USMNT to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar, has been without a job since his contract expired in December. Despite being linked with Club America, Swansea City, and Sparta Rotterdam over recent weeks, Berhalter has chosen to return to the USMNT, a decision that has been met with support from key players like Christian Pulisic and Tim Weah.

During his previous tenure, Berhalter led the USMNT to two major victories against Mexico in the Nations League and Gold Cup finals in 2021. His return is expected to provide continuity and stability as the team prepares for the upcoming Gold Cup and the road to the 2026 World Cup.
