Well ... it's officially official.

After weeks of speculation, Bruce Arena has been named the head coach of the U.S. Men's National Soccer team ... the squad announced Tuesday morning.

Arena replaces recently sacked Jurgen Klinsmann ... who lasted 5 years with the organization.

“Any time you get the opportunity to coach the National Team it’s an honor,” Arena said.
