Bob Bradley's agent says the former U.S. coach is a candidate to lead Egypt's national team.

Ron Waxman confirmed Egypt's interest in Bradley in an email Tuesday, but did not give any further details. Bradley reportedly is among three candidates to replace longtime Egypt coach Hassan Shehata, who stepped down in June with the Pharaohs in danger of failing to qualify for the African Cup of Nations for the first time in 33 years.

Bradley was dismissed last month after going 43-25-12 in four-plus years as U.S. coach. He took the Americans to the Confederations Cup final - after beating Egypt 3-0 in group play - and the knockout round at last year's World Cup in South Africa.
