LE HAVRE, France —

Former United States coach Bob Bradley is taking over at French second-division club Le Havre.

Bradley, who also previously managed Egypt, is joining the French team from Stabaek after leading the Norwegian side into the Europa League.

Bradley said ”becoming head coach of the HAC, France’s oldest football club, is a new challenge in my career.”


Behind the signing is American executive Vincent Volpe, the president of an oil and energy company who bought the club over the summer.

After 14 matches this season, Le Havre sits fourth in the second-tier French league standings.
