U.S. Soccer Federation sporting director Earnie Stewart is leaving his post to join PSV Eindhoven after the departure of men's national team general manager Brian McBride, a management shakeup that leaves the position of men's coach Gregg Berhalter in uncertainty.
Berhalter and McBride were hired by Stewart.
"While we are sad to see Earnie go, he has helped lay a strong foundation and build a strong sporting staff to ensure that the future of U.S. Soccer is bright," U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said in a statement.
"Today, we have a unique opportunity to bring in a new Sporting Director to build on this momentum. We are eager to engage new leaders who will match our ambitions and realize our vision for the future, taking our National Teams to the next level, including competing for a FIFA World Cup on home soil in 2026."
