Bob Bradley Officially Becomes Egypt National Team Coach

Almost two weeks after Egypt had said Bob Bradley had agreed to become their national team coach, the former U.S. manager has officially taken over the Pharoahs as they try to return to the World Cup for the first time since 1990. Bradley was introduced at a Saturday press conference.

Egypt is one of the most decorated teams in all of Africa. The Pharoahs have won a record seven African Cup of Nation titles and have the continents two most powerful club teams.

Bradley becomes the third American to coach a foreign national team, but this will clearly be the highest profile. Bill Moravek coached the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2000 and Steve Sampson led Costa Rica in 2002-04.

Reports out of Egypt said Bradley would be paid almost $500,000 annually, but that questions still remain over who will fill out his coaching staff. Egyptian-born Zak Abdel was Bradley's goalkeeper's coach with the U.S. national team.
