Bob Bradley has been fired as coach of the U.S. men's soccer team, it was announced on Thursday.

Bradley led the team to big moments during his tenure, including Landon Donovan's heart-stopping goal to secure a place in the round of 16 at last year's World Cup in South Africa and an unforgettable victory over Spain in 2009.

But to some, the disappointing Gold Cup loss to a Mexico team that seems to be on the upswing was another sign that the U.S. team's progress has stalled under Bradley.

Bradley was chosen as coach in January 2007 and went 43-25-12 overall.
