The move comes at a turbulent time for US soccer as Gregg Berhalter’s future after coaching the team remains in doubt until the 2022 World Cup.

Berhalter was investigated after he was blackmailed by former national team-mate Claudio Reyna and his wife over an incident in which Berhalter kicked his wife in 1991.

The United States will play two friendlies against Serbia and Colombia later this month, coached by interim coach Anthony Hudson.

Berhalter’s contract as head coach of the national team expired in early January and it was announced his future would only be decided once the investigation was complete.

As with Berhalter, McBride’s contract expired this month, however the decision was made not to keep him by sporting director Earnie Stewart and those in power.

A native of Arlington Heights, Illinois, he played for the United States at three different World Cups and was inducted into America’s National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2014.

Aside from being the first American player to score in three different World Cups, he is also one of only 11 ever called up to three different World Cups.
