Mitchell to be 10th Canada head coach since '86 World Cup

A day after U.S. Soccer confirmed Bob Bradley as men's national team coach, Canada Soccer Association followed its lead and has called a press conference for Thursday in Toronto to announce the appointment of under-20 national team coach Dale Mitchell as men's national team coach.

Under-17 coach Stephen Hart will guide the Canadian men at the Gold Cup, while Mitchell will coach host Canada at the Under-20 World Cup.

Mitchell, a former star in the NASL, was one of four final candidates, along with Brazilian Rene Simoes, Argentine Ossie Ardiles and Hart. The CSA board reportedly rejected a deal made with Simoes, who led Jamaica to the 1998 World Cup finals, for the job.

It took almost a year to fill the vacancy created when Frank Yallop left to coach MLS's Los Angeles Galaxy.

Mitchell will be Canada's 10th coach since it qualified for the 1986 World Cup.

CANADA COACHES (1986-2007):
Bob Bearpark 1986-1987
Tony Taylor 1988
Bob Lenarduzzi 1989-1990
Tony Waiters 1990-1991
Bob Lenarduzzi 1992-1997
Bruce Twamley (interim) 1998
Holger Osieck 1999-2003
Colin Miller (interim)
Frank Yallop 2004-June 2006
Stephen Hart (interim)
