Hudson leaves USMNT days before Nations League

USMNT announce surprise exit for interim coach Anthony Hudson

The interim boss will part ways with the American side in order to take a coaching opportunity elsewhere with the Gold Cup and the Nations League finals ahead.

In a surprising turn of events and with the CONCACAF Nations League finals just around the corner, the United States' National Team announced that interim coach Anthony Hudson would part ways with immediate effect.

The decision, according to the USMNT and other sources close to the U.S. Soccer Federation, responds to Hudson's interest to coach another team. While information is sketchy at the moment, the only certainty is that Hudson will not be joining another national team.

Departing coach Anthony Hudson had a few words after the announcement was made.

"I would like to thank U.S. Soccer for the opportunity to be part of such a great team of players and staff. It's been an honor to represent the National Team and one that I have truly valued and enjoyed," Hudson said.

The role will be taken by assistant manager B.J. Callahan, who will experience being a first-team coach for the first time in his career after stints with the Philadelphia Union and the USMNT.

"B.J. has been an integral part of the USMNT staff during the last four years as this young team has grown and developed. Working alongside Anthony Hudson these last five months, we are confident he is prepared and ready to lead this group in the summer tournaments," Matt Crocker, sporting director for the USMNT, stated in the news release.

The 41-year-old Callahan joined the team's staff in 2019, and is currently the longest-serving member in the North American squad. His term as interim boss will conclude when the USMNT's run in the CONCACAF Gold Cup comes to an end, when the USSF hopes they can name a permanent manager that will lead the team to the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which is set to take place in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
