U.S. coach Bob Bradley will meet with U.S. Soccer officials this week to talk about his future with the national team, a U.S. Soccer source tells ESPN.

The meeting is expected to include Bradley, federation president Sunil Gulati and secretary general Dan Flynn.

The meeting isn't necessarily where a decision on Bradley will be made, but "will be to simply discuss the future," the source said, declining to specify a day or location.

When the U.S. was eliminated from the World Cup in the round of 16 earlier this summer, Gulati said he felt the team "was capable of more" and described its performance as "mixed results."

Bradley led the Americans to the top of their group for the first time in 80 years. But with the team in good position to reach the semifinals, the U.S. lost 2-1 to Ghana in overtime in the first round of the knockout stage.

Bradley, whose contract expires at the end of the year, has been linked recently to the Aston Villa opening in the English Premier League.

ESPN reporter Sandy Rosenbush contributed to this story.
