Carlos Bielsa, who led Chile to the second round of the World Cup, has been rewarded with a contract extension through the 2015 Copa America. The 55-year-old
Argentine had been mentioned as a possible candidate for the U.S. national team head coaching position if Bob Bradley was not retained.
"We have reached complete agreement on all points," said Chilean federation Harold Mayne-Nicholls.
Bielsa, who previously coached Argentina at the 2002 World Cup, earned a salary of $1.5 million under the terms of his previous contract.
