Toronto FC has officially named Bob Bradley head coach and sporting director of the soccer club. They are hoping his experience and savvy may revive the franchise after a very poor season. Bradley is 63-years-of-age and the father of TFC captain Michael Bradley.
He just parted ways with Los Angeles FC last Thursday as they missed the playoffs by three points. Los Angeles FC finished ninth in the Western Conference with a record of 12-13-9. Bradley has been awarded three-time MLS coach of the year and Toronto hopes he can bring them to their former glory under Greg Vanney. Unfortunately, Greg Vanyey left last December to take over the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Toronto FC finished this season with a record of 6-18-10 putting them in 26th place and unable to qualify for playoffs. Toronto FC president Bill Manning said in a statement “we are excited for Bob to get to work,… We are entering an extremely important off-season and know we have a team that needs a significant makeover. Bob has experience putting teams together and in getting them to perform at a high-level. He understands the expectations and standards of TFC and is ready to take on this challenge.”
