Remembering Gordon Bradley
With a heavy heart, I must report that Gordon Bradley, one of the most influential figures in American soccer the last 30 years, has died of complications from Alzheimer's disease. He was 74. He would have celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary with his wife, Vera, this summer. Information on a memorial service is pending.
The English-born Bradley coached the U.S. national team briefly, guided the Cosmos and Diplomats in the NASL, led George Mason University to national prominence and served as a color commentator on D.C. United broadcasts. He is the only man who could claim to have coached Pele, Beckenbauer and Cruyff.
