CHICAGO (AP) – Bob Bradley earned a $400,000 bonus during the year when the U.S. reached the second round of the 2010 World Cup, raising his compensation for the 12-month period to $941,792.
The U.S. Soccer Federation's tax return for the year ending last March 31 showed Bradley with $515,647 in base compensation, $7,350 in deferred compensation and $18,795 in nontaxable benefits.
Bradley's team reached the second round of the 2010 World Cup, where it lost to Ghana. He was fired as U.S. coach last summer and replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann, who has been given a base salary of $2.5 million. Bradley then was hired to coach Egypt's national team.
The tax return, dated Jan. 31, lists the incomes for several national team players from the USSF: captain Carlos Bocanegra ($347,583), Michael Bradley ($345,782), Landon Donovan ($342,989) and Tim Howard ($339,388).
Women's coach Pia Sundhage was not listed among the highest-10 compensated employees.
The USSF spent roughly $4.48 million of its money to fund its failed World Cup bid.
The tax return was first reported by The Washington Post.
