Bruce Arena was named the new US national soccer team's coach. Again.


Bruce Arena was named the new coach of the U.S. men's national soccer team, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced Tuesday.

Arena coached the team from 1988 to 2006. He was part of three World Cup runs, including a quarterfinal appearance in 2002,  the best showing in U.S. history. In 2006, however, the team didn't make it out of the group stage. Before today, he was the coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Arena replaces Jurgen Klinsmann, who has coached the team since 2011 but was fired after losing to Mexico and Costa Rica.

Here's the announcement tweet.

Arena has attracted controversy for saying foreign-born players shouldn't be on the team.

However, he is still the winningest coach in team history.

And some soccer writers thought he would be a good fit.
