Jesse Marsch has joined the staff of USA head coach Bob Bradley.

A player in MLS since the league’s inception in 1996, Marsch has announced his retirement from Chivas USA and will help lead the U.S. through the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Marsch, who holds a USSF ‘A’ license, will join the U.S. team for training camp beginning Feb. 10 at The Home Depot Center, ahead of the game against El Salvador on Feb. 24 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

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

Marsch made two appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team, most recently against China in June of 2007. His first came Nov. 11, 2001, in a World Cup qualifier against Trinidad & Tobago in Port of Spain.

"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."
