CHICAGO (Dec. 22, 2023) – The U.S. Soccer Federation has named Vincent Cavin as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s National Team. Cavin joins the staff of USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter after 13 years with the Swiss Football Association, having served as an assistant coach and other roles for the Switzerland Men’s National Team since 2014.
“We are pleased to welcome Vincent to the USMNT staff. His international experience at global soccer events will certainly be a valuable asset,” Berhalter said. “He shares our vision and values and adds a perspective that will benefit the entire group.”
During his tenure, the Switzerland National Team participated in three FIFA World Cups, two European Championships and one UEFA Nations League Final. Since 2021, he has also served as the team’s Head of Performance Development. He will begin work with the USMNT during the January camp next month.

I look forward to contributing to the collective effort to help achieve our vision and would like to thank the U.S. Soccer Federation for this opportunity.”
After a 10-year playing career in Switzerland, Cavin began his coaching career in 2005. He joined the Swiss FA in 2010 as an assistant coach and analyst with the U-21 team that finished as runners up in the 2011 European U-21 Championship and then participated in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
