An accomplished manager and two-time FIFA World Cup veteran, Gregg Berhalter was named head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team on December 2, 2018. 

Working to develop a new style of play with a young group, Berhalter led the side to an 11-5-2 record, and became the second-fastest manager in team history to achieve double-digit victories (17 games). In the summer, Berhalter guided the USMNT to the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup Final, advancement to the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Final Round in June, as well as 1-1 draws against reigning Copa America champion Chile (March 26) and No. 5-ranked Uruguay (Sept. 10).

An intelligent and competitive anchor in central defense as a player, Berhalter spent 18 professional seasons in the Netherlands, England, Germany and the United States before serving seven years as a coach in Sweden and Major League Soccer. Capped 44 times, Berhalter represented the United States at two FIFA World Cups and was a notable part of the 2002 team that advanced to the Quarterfinals in Korea/Japan. A natural leader, Berhalter is one of only a few Americans who have captained multiple teams in Europe, earning that honor for two different clubs in Germany. He is the first MNT head coach to have played for the USA at a FIFA World Cup. 

Showing a keen interest in coaching, Berhalter began in the sport’s technical side during the late stages of his playing career. While with German club 1860 Munich, the defender scouted opponents from 2007-2009. He transitioned into the coaching ranks during his final season as a professional, serving as a player/assistant coach for the LA Galaxy in 2011, helping the club to the MLS Cup and Supporters Shield in the process.
