On Tuesday, U.S. Soccer announced that Scotsman and current Australia head coach Tom Sermanni will take over for the departed Pia Sundhage as the coach of the United States women’s national team.

The decision was a little bit of a surprise, as there were several qualified American coaches who wanted the job, but Sermanni’s résumé is impressive and his selection appears to be a good choice.

Sermanni brings 13 years and three World Cups worth of international head coaching experience and also coached for three years in the now defunct WUSA.

Sermanni will officially take over the team on January 1; interim head coach Jill Ellis will handle the remaining five matches of the USWNT’s Fan Tribute Tour.
