Bob Bradley Named New Le Havre Manager

Bob Bradley has moved on to his next big challenge. 

The former U.S. national team boss was named manager of French second division side Le Havre on Tuesday, ending a successful two-year run at Stabaek in Norway. 

“Becoming head coach of Le Havre, France’s oldest football club, is a new challenge in my career,” Bradley said in a club release. 

“This is an ambitious project with objectives outlined by the club’s leadership very much in line with my personal career aspirations. I am confident that together we can build upon this fine franchise and create a long-term, strong Ligue 1 team.”

After leaving the U.S. national team in 2011, Bradley managed Egypt to the brink of a World Cup place before moving onto Norway. In the recently completed season, Bradley led small-budget Stabaek to third place in the Tippaeligan – good for a spot in next season’s Europa League. 

Le Havre is currently in fourth place in Ligue 2 after 14 matches. Bradley’s first match in charge will be Saturday at Saint-Omer in the Coupe de France.
