Former United States Men's National Team manager Bob Bradley is on the move once again. He's leaving Norwegian club Stabaek for Ligue 2 side Le Havre AC according to VG.

Bradley's contract with Stabaek expired after this most recent season leaving him free to join any club that wanted him. He leaves the club on a high point as they qualified for a Europa League spot already. When the 57-year-old took over in 2014 they were near the relegation zone. Now as he departs they're in a European competition. Quite an accomplishment to say the least.

Despite being linked to jobs like Sunderland and Aston Villa in the Premier League, it appears Bradley's next destination will be the French second-division. While not as glamorous or prestigious as the EPL, it will be a big challenge for the American. La Havre AC currently sits fourth in the Ligue 2 table and have a real chance at promotion this season.

The club was bought in the summer by American Vincent Volpe. He owns 90 percent of the club and it could explain the connection to Bradley.

Bob has always been a manager willing to accept difficult situations and try to turn them around. This next adventure in his great career should be a fun one to witness. If he's successful in leading his new club up to Ligue 1, it would just add to the amazing feats he's accomplished already and inevitably lead to bigger and better managing opportunities within Europe.
