Bob Bradley, who was named the new manager of Norwegian club Stabæk on Friday, is setting a new trail for American coaches: He is now the first American to manage at top-flight club in Europe.
But he is not the only American ever to coach in Europe. In fact, he will not be the only American coaching in Europe currently.
Here are five other Yanks at the helm in the Old World.
Dennis Lukens, current, FC Krystal Kherson (Ukraine) – Lukens, who was previously on the technical staffs of US lower-division and indoor clubs, including the defunct Boston Storm and the MISL's California Cougars, has been in charge of Krystal since September 2012. The club, based in the Black Sea port city of Kherson, plays in the the Ukrainian second division and currently sits in 11th place. Lukens are largely unknown to Americans, which is perhaps why he's willing to wade into the comment section of an article about American coaches.
David Wagner, current, Borussia Dortmund II (Germany) – Along with his former Schalke teammate Thomas Dooley, Wagner was one of the original German-Americans to join the US national team, earning eight caps between 1996 and 1998. He was hired in 2011 to helm Borussia Dortmund II, the reserve team of the Bundesliga powerhouse. They are currently in ninth place in the 3.Liga, Germany's third division.
Gregg Berhalter, 2011-13, Hammarby (Sweden) – The current Columbus Crew head coach and sporting director made a splash when he signed with Hammarby in December 2011, becoming the most prominent American head coach in Europe at the time. He spent two years trying to get the Swedish second-division side promoted. After a fourth-place finish in year one, the club sacked him midway through his second year, citing "not enough dividends in the offense."
Joe Enochs, 2011, Osnabruck (Germany) – For two glorious, stress-filled weeks, the former Sacramento State midfielder was interim manager for the club he represented more than 350 times as they fought – and survived – a relegation battle from the 2.Bundesliga, Germany's second division.
Brent Goulet, 2004-08, SV Elversberg (Germany) – An ex-US international who once helped tiny Tennish Borussia Berlin reach the 2.Bundesliga in the early 1990s, Goulet later took the reins at Elversberg, where he had played at the end of his career, when the club was in the third tier of German soccer.
Tim Hankinson, 1991, UMF Tindastoll (Iceland) -- Years before he managed the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the Colorado Rapids in MLS, Hankinson spent one season in the Icelandic 2nd division. He brought in former US international Kevin Grimes -- currently the head coach at Cal -- but it didn't help an already struggling side: Tindastoll were relegated after going 1-16-1 and finishing in last place.
