CHICAGO (AP) — Anthony Hudson was hired as coach of the U.S. men's under-20 soccer team on Wednesday to replace Tab Ramos, who quit in October to become coach of Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo.
The 38-year-old Hudson coached Bahrain's senior national team from 2013-14 and New Zealand from 2014-17. He was hired by Colorado before the 2018 season and led the Rapids to eight wins, 19 losses and seven ties in his first MLS season. He was fired May 1 after a winless start that included seven league losses and two draws.
Ramos coached at the last four Under-20 World Cups, leading the U.S. to the quarterfinals in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
