Former US assistant Barrieu hired by UAE

BY foxsports • November 16, 2011

Pierre Barrieu, the well-regarded former fitness coach of the U.S. national team, has been hired as assistant coach by the United Arab Emirates.

Barrieu said in an email Wednesday that his family relocated to Dubai in September, a little over a month after Bob Bradley was replaced as the American coach by Jurgen Klinsmann, who brought in his own staff.

Barrieu will serve as assistant coach and federation head fitness coach for the UAE, which already has been eliminated in qualifying for the 2014 World Cup.

Bradley became head coach of Egypt.
