VIENNA — Former U.S. men's soccer head coach Alketas "Alkis" Panagoulias has died. He was 78.

USA Soccer and the Greek Football Association confirmed Tuesday that he died on Monday.

A native of Greece, Panagoulias led the U.S. men from 1983-85, and also guided the 1984 Olympic team. He later managed Greece from 1992-94 and led his country to its first World Cup appearance in 1994.

The Americans went 6-5-7 with Panagoulias as coach. At the time, Panagoulias' six wins were the second-highest total for a U.S. head coach.
