Despite a favorable group the U.S. did not make the knockout round as the Copa America host, making U.S. hopes for a quarterfinal or better finish in 2026 look bleak. Berhalter had a record of 44-17-13 and one long-ago domestic violence investigation.

Giants Legend Willie Mays Dies at 93: Willie Mays, the center fielder thought to be baseball's greatest all-around player, died Tuesday at age 93. The Say Hey Kid had a career that began in the 1940s in the Negro Leagues, spent 21 seasons with the New York and San Francisco Giants, and ended with the New York Mets in 1973. He was the rare great hitter who loved fielding as much if not more. "Don't get me wrong: I like to hit," he said in 1955. "But there's nothing like getting out there in the outfield, running after a ball and throwing somebody out trying to take that extra base."
