One of the most sought-after head coaches in the game of soccer is Bob Bradley, current head coach of the Los Angeles Football Club.

Sought-after as in, if he is available.

The 61-year-old Montclair, New Jersey native has coached everywhere in the world. Overseas in Eygpt, Stabaek, Le Havre and Swansea City. In the college ranks for Princeton twice from 1976-1980 and 1984-1995. He was named the head coach at nearby Ohio University in 1981 at the young age of 22.

In the MLS, he has been on the pitch sidelines leading DC united, Chicago, New York/New Jersey Metro Stars and Chivas USA.

He has also coached the USA Men’s National Soccer Team for two stints: 2006–2007 and 2006–2011.

When a new team enters Major League Soccer, Bradley’s name is often the first one that comes up, if he is available as we stated before.

Entering the league in 2018, LAFC turned to the veteran Bradley who has immediately put the franchise on the winning track. He led the team to the most points (57) with a record of 16-9-9, which placed them third in the Western Conference and fifth overall in the MLS by an expansion team in its first year and a postseason berth which is simply unheard of in professional sports.

Bradley owns two of the best-ever inaugural seasons for an expansion teams in Major League Soccer. Twenty years ago in 1998, Bradley led the Fire to the MLS Cup and U.S. Open Cup titles.

Since being named head coach for LAFC, Bradley has a record of 24-10-12.

On the current MLS winningest active head coach list, Bradley currently has 148 wins, and is just one of five current head coaches that have won an MLS Cup (Vermes, Porter, Scmetzar and Vanney).
