Former USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter is reportedly going to make a comeback to the role months after the Gio Reyna scandal, as per The Athletic.

The 49-year-old was fired after the Qatar World Cup in December. Then, Gio Reyna’s parents Claudio and Danielle Reyna revealed that the coach engaged in domestic abuse of his wife Rosalind Berhalter back in college.

Danielle was a roommate and teammate of Rosalind.

Gio’s parents made the claims after their son was kept out of the starting 11 by coach Berhalter in the World Cup. The 20-year-old had apologized for ‘not meeting expectations’. Danielle said that she was angry that the US coach did not give her son the forgiveness he received.

Berhalter released a statement in January. “One night, while out drinking at a local bar, Rosalind and I had a heated argument that continued outside. It became physical and I kicked her in the legs. To this day that type of behaviour has never been repeated. The lessons learned from that night over three decades ago became the foundation for a loving, devoted and supportive relationship,” he said.

An investigation found out that Berhalter did not improperly withhold information and authorities found “no evidence to suggest that he has engaged in similar misconduct at any other time”.

US Soccer are yet to appoint Berhalter’s permanent successor, the Athletic reported. B.J. Callaghan filled the role at an interim level.
