Bob Bradley has a new job.
Two and a half months after being fired by Toronto FC, Bradley has been named manager of Norwegian club Stabaek.
The American previously managed Stabaek from 2014 to 2015 and will now return to the club with a contract running through the end of the 2023 season.
Stabaek is currently in the relegation zone in the Norwegian Eliteserien, sitting in 15th place out of 16 teams. Bradley has 11 games to get them out and keep them up.
After being hired in November 2021 to rebuild the team, Bradley left TFC at the end of June with a 14-26-19 record and the third-longest head coaching tenure in the club’s history.
Bradley was head coach of the USMNT from 2006 to 2011, leading the team to a successful finish at the 2010 World Cup before being eliminated in the knockout round. Bradley has been named MLS Coach of the Year three times and is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
After leaving the USMNT, Bradley went on to coach the Egyptian national team and had stints with Stabaek, French side Le Havre AC, and Swansea City in the English Premier League.
He returned to MLS as the inaugural manager of LAFC in 2017, leading the club to immediate success and winning the Supporters’ Shield in 2019 and a CONCACAF Champions League final before leaving the club in 2021 to join Toronto FC.
