Bob Bradley hired to coach Chivas USA

It didn't take Bob Bradley long to find a new job. After being fired by the MetroStars two months ago, he has found a new home with Chivas USA. The strange thing is that not very long ago, Chivas owner Jorge Vergara made a big deal about keeping current coach Hans Westerhof (who replaced Thomas Rongen mid-season). Westerhof gave up his title of director of football for Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara, Saprissa of Costa Rica and Chivas USA to coach the team. No word on what his position in the Chivas operation will be.

For Bradley the goal is a simple one, stick it to the MetroStars. Wait, no. I think his goal is to turn Chivas into something other then the butt of MLS jokes. It will also be interesting to see if Bradley can keep his playoff bound streak alive. Every MLS team he has coached during his eight seasons in the league has made the playoffs.

Without giving full details, Chivas says this is a multi-year deal that will keep Bradley as the highest paid coach in the league.

I'm hoping he brings back Ryan Suarez to Chivas ;) !
