The 52-year-old manager of the American national soccer team took the U.S. side unbeaten through the group stage matches with a win against Algeria and draws against England and Slovenia.
In the second round, the American team played a tough Ghana side and the game went into extra time with the Ghana team eventually claiming victory with a 1-2 win.
"I thought at 1-1 we had a chance, but we didn't have enough freshness against all of Ghana's power," Bradley said.
"We have a great squad. We're proud but also disappointed not to have gone further."
Bradley took over managing the team in December 2006 and quickly took his team to a number of wins in friendly matches against teams like Mexico.
In his first year as manager, Bradley took the U.S. side to an impressive record of 12 wins, one draw and five losses.
One of the highlight's for the U.S. side came in 2009 when the team finished in second place in the Confederations Cup. The Americans even managed to beat the world's number one ranked team and European champions, Spain.
