CHICAGO - Bob Bradley has been fired as head coach of the U.S. men's national team after five years in the job.

The announcement came Thursday from U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati.

The U.S. is coming off a poor showing in the Gold Cup, including a stunning 2-1 loss to Panama and a 4-2 loss in the final against Mexico.

Bradley was chosen as coach in January 2007, winning 43 matches, losing 25 and drawing 12. He led the team to the round of 16 of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
