Bradley to coach MLS ex­pan­sion team in L.A.

AN­GE­LES» Bob Bradley LOS was named the first coach of the Los An­ge­les Foot­ball Club, the MLS ex­pan­sion fran­chise due to be­gin play next year.

Bradley, 59, is the for­mer coach of the U.S. men’s na­tional team and the most ac­com­plished Amer­i­can coach in in­ter­na­tional club soc­cer his­tory.

Bradley coached the U.S. team from 2006-11, win­ning a CON­CA­CAF Gold Cup ti­tle in 2007 be­fore be­com­ing the only coach in 80 years to win a World Cup group and reach the knock­out rounds in South Africa in 2010.

• The Galaxy fired coach Curt Onalfo just 20 games into his first sea­son in charge of the strug­gling club. The Galaxy hired vet­eran MLS coach Sigi Sch­mid to re­turn.

Onalfo went 6-10-4 af­ter be­ing pro­moted from their devel­op­men­tal squad when long­time Galaxy coach Bruce Arena went to the U.S. na­tional team.

For­mer Duck joins Utes.

For­mer Ore­gon re­ceiver Dar­ren Car­ring­ton has signed with Utah.

The se­nior will join the Utes but is not im­me­di­ately able to join the foot­ball team on the field.

Utes coach Kyle Whit­ting­ham said there are “pa­per­work things” that must be com­pleted with the Pac-12 and NCAA be­fore Car­ring­ton is fully cleared as fall prac­tices be­gin Fri­day. He is con­fi­dent those hur­dles will be cleared.

Car­ring­ton was dis­missed from the Ducks two weeks ago, soon af­ter he was ar­rested on a mis­de­meanor charge of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence.

Last sea­son, Car­ring­ton had 43 catches for 606 yards and five touch­downs. He has 112 ca­reer re­cep­tions for 1,919 yards and 15 touch­downs.

New top dogs for Amer­i­can men’s swim­ming.

HUN­GARY» Caeleb BU­DA­PEST, Dres­sel put the United States back on top in swim­ming’s glam­our event. Chase Kal­isz proved to be a wor­thy suc­ces­sor to Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

Call it a chang­ing of the guard for the Amer­i­can men.

For Katie Ledecky, on the other hand, it was a more fa­mil­iar re­sult — an­other gold medal af­ter the big­gest de­feat of her ca­reer the pre­vi­ous day.

Ledecky earned her fourth gold of the world cham­pi­onships by an­chor­ing the U.S. vic­tory in the 4x200-me­ter freestyle re­lay, tak­ing over with a slight lead be­fore pow­er­ing away to win by a full body length. Her tem­mates were Leah Smith, Mal­lory Comer­ford and Me­lanie Mar­galis.

The 20-year-old Dres­sel emerged as Amer­ica’s new­est sprint­ing star in 100 free, hold­ing off long­time team stal­wart Nathan Adrian.

Kal­isz, mean­while, ex­tended Amer­i­can rule of the 200 in­di­vid­ual med­ley, ral­ly­ing to claim his first ma­jor in­ter­na­tional cham­pi­onship. The Amer­i­cans have won the event at eight straight world cham­pi­onships, not to men­tion at the last four Olympics — with Phelps or Lochte win­ning ev­ery time.
