The United States Soccer Federation have announced that B.J Callaghan will be the new head coach of the USMNT for the forthcoming CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup.
Callaghan has served as assistant coach of the USMNT for the last four years and takes over from Anthony Hudson, who has left the role to seek new opportunities according to an official statement.

This will be Callaghan’s first head coach role after serving as an assistant at Philadelphia Union and then under Gregg Berhalter, who left the job following the United States’ defeat to the Netherlands in the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup.
The news is not likely to deter from the US appointing a long-term head coach following the side’s matches this summer, with Jesse Marsch still the bookmakers’ favorite to take over the role, despite rumors linking him with French club Monaco yesterday.
