The United States have parted company with head coach Bob Bradley, after a five-year spell.
Bradley, 53, had been in charge of the national team since January 2007 and oversaw a triumphant campaign in the Gold Cup later that year.
He also guided the USA to second place in the 2009 Confederations Cup, losing 3-2 to Brazil in the final, but US Soccer president Sunil Gulati felt a new face was needed.
He said: ''We want to thank Bob Bradley for his service and dedication to US Soccer during the past five years.
''During his time as the head coach of our men's national team he led the team to a number of accomplishments, but we felt now was the right time for us to make a change.''
Gulati also took the opportunity to wish Bradley good luck for the future.
''It is always hard to make these decisions, especially when it involves someone we respect as much as Bob,'' he said. ''We wish him the best in his future endeavours.''
