Brian McBride

Where is Brian McBride now?

Regarded as a hero at Craven Cottage, Brian McBride won Fulham’s Player of the Year award twice during his four-year spell and was also the club captain in 2007.

He was such a popular figure within the club they named a bar in Fulham’s iconic Craven Cottage ground after him imaginatively titled “McBrides”.

After leaving London in 2008 to move back to the MLS with Columbus Crew, he finally retired from playing in 2010, although he did make a one off comeback with Wembley FC in 2012 as part of a Budweiser promotion.

In July 2017, he was appointed head coach of the MLS Homegrown Team which participate in an annual game which showcases the young talent within the MLS League’s youth development system.

In January 2020 he was named general manager of the US Men’s National Team (USMNT) where his responsibilities include the development and management of the player pool and also to manage the relationships with clubs.

He is also co-founder of TiPEVO which is a sports network that connects parents and players with over 50,000 youth sports programmes nationwide.
