Bob Bradley's Stabaek club playing in Portland preseason tournament
Bob Bradley will be coaching in the United States once again, this time with his Norwegian club Stabaek as the team takes part in the 2015 Simple Invitational at Providence Park in Portland, the Timbers announced Wednesday.
Bradley coached the United States men's national team from 2006 to 2011, compiling a record of 43-12-25 before being fired in July 2011. He then became coach of the Egypt national team before taking over at Stabaek last January.
In his first season as the boss of Stabaek, Bradley has guided the club to a record of 16-7-14 and reached the semifinals of the Norwegian Cup, the team's deepest run in that tournament since 2008.
The invitational will take place from Feb. 22-28 and will also include the Chicago Fire and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
