Berhalter, 45, will be the 37th coach in team history. He has coached the Columbus Crew since 2013. He posted a 74-69-50 as coach of the Crew, including an MLS Cup final appearance in 2015.

Before his move to coaching, Berhalter had 44 appearances for the senior national team. He also played for the Los Angeles Galaxy when the squad won the MLS Cup in 2011. He also played at North Carolina, and in England and Germany.

Former USMNT coach Bruce Arena re-signed from his post in October 2017. Dave Sarachan replaced Arena on an interim basis.
