U.S. men’s national soccer team coach Bob Bradley is leading a pre-World Cup training camp this week at Princeton University in New Jersey.  It’s a homecoming for the 52-year-old Bradley, who was born and raised in New Jersey, and who previously played soccer and coached the men’s team at Princeton.

U.S. team press officer Michael Kammarman told VOA that Princeton is a great venue and was an easy choice for the training camp because it’s Coach Bradley’s alma mater.

Bradley was only 22-years-old when he began his coaching career at Ohio University.  He then moved on the University of Virginia and then coached at Princeton.  Bradley led “The Tigers” of Princeton from 1984 to 1995, before going on to coach in Major League Soccer and the USA’s national team program.

Coach Bradley comes from a family of athletes.  His brother Scott played for Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners club and is the current baseball coach at Princeton.  And his son, Michael, was also born in Princeton and is a top midfielder for the USA’s World Cup team.
