According to several reports, Southampton director of football Matt Crocker has been hired by the U.S. Soccer as its new sporting director.

A Zoom press conference on Tuesday at 11 a.m. ET has been called by U.S. Soccer to name the its new sporting director.

U.S. president Cindy Parlow Cone, CEO/secregary general JT Batson and Crocker are scheduled to be in the press conference.

The Athletic, ESPN, Washington Post and Philadelphia Inquirer have reported that Crocker would be named. He will replace Earnie Stewart, who stepped down in February to join PSV Eindhoven.

In December, Crocker announced that he would leave his Southampton role at the end of the 2022-23English Premier League campaign. He had been with the club since early 2020 after a stint with the English FA.

It will be Crocker’s first charge to name a new coach of the U.S. men’s national team. After directing the Americans into the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Gregg Berhalter’s contract ran out on Dec. 31.

However, Berhalter’s future was thrown into question after an investigation of decades-old allegations of domestic violence. They came in the wake of Berhalter’s treatment of Borussia Dortmund’s Gio Reyna at the World Cup in which his parents claimed their son did not play enough in Qatar.

At the present time, Anthony Hudson is the interim head coach.
