Today, U.S. Soccer announced that Australia head coach Tom Sermanni has been hired to become the next coach of the United States Women’s National Team.

Interim coach Jill Ellis will handle the team’s remaining five friendlies as part of the team’s Fan Tribute Tour before Sermanni takes the reins on January 1.

Sermanni was chosen as the man for the job over more than 30 other domestic and international candidates, including former USWNT coach Tony DiCicco, who led the team to Olympic gold in 1996 and the World Cup title in 1999, and accomplished University of Notre Dame coach Randy Waldrum.
