[USA] Jesse Marsch, who played for Bob Bradley at Princeton University and in MLS with three different teams, has retired as a player with MLS's Chivas USA and been named an assistant coach under Bradley on the staff of the U.S. men’s national team. Marsch and Steve Ralston, who moved last week to AC St. Louis of the USSF Division 2, werethe last remaining players who had been continuously active in MLS since its launch in 1996.

 

Marsch, who made two appearances for the U.S. national team in 2001 and 2007 and holds a USSF ‘A’ license, will join the U.S. team for training camp beginning Wednesday at the Home Depot Center.

 

"I'm excited about this opportunity with U.S. Soccer," said Marsch. "I am looking forward to working hard to help this team be successful in the future."

 

Marsch made 358 appearances in his 14-year MLS career, winning three MLS Cup titles and four U.S. Open Cup medals.

 

“I have had the opportunity to work with Jesse for many years,” said Bradley, "and I believe the knowledge and experience he brings will be a great benefit to both the players and the coaching staff."

 

Bradley recruited Marsch, a native of Racine, Wis., to play for Princeton in 1992. Upon graduation, Marsch joined D.C. United, where Bradley was an assistant under Bruce Arena.

 

In 1998, Bradley took the reignsof the expansion Chicago Fire and Marsch helped the club complete its historic double, winning both the U.S. Open Cup and the MLS Cup.

 

When Bradley took over as head coach of Chivas USA prior to the 2006 season, Marsch moved to the club and went on to make 106 appearances in four seasons.
