This is not a drill.

Following reports from reputable American soccer reporters Thursday morning, this gif emerged of Bob Bradley, rumored to be the new Los Angeles Football Club head coach, unmistakably decked out in LAFC gear on LAFC’s website.

That confirms it, as does this page on LAFC’s website.

More news, including a full release, should be out on this before long, but suffice to say this move had been rumored for some time, and with other candidates for the job appearing to bow out, Bradley emerged as the frontrunner.

This is Bradley’s first job in MLS since 2006, when he orchestrated a complete turnaround of Chivas USA, before taking the U.S. Men’s National Team job a year later. Bradley won the 1998 MLS Cup with the Chicago Fire when they were an expansion team, and has also coached the MetroStars (now the New York Red Bulls). In the meantime, Bradley coached abroad, for the Egyptian national team, Norwegian side Stabaek, French club Le Havre and Premier League team Swansea City.
