CHICAGO (AP) — Tony Gustavsson has been hired as a full-time assistant to U.S. women’s head coach Jill Ellis.

He will begin work with the Americans’ matches against France in June.

Gustavsson, 40, was on fellow Swede Pia Sundhage’s staff for the 2012 Olympics, helping the United States win the gold medal. He returns to U.S. Soccer after a  successful stint as head coach of Tyresö FF in Sweden’s premier women’s league. Tyresö won the league title in 2012 under Gustavsson.

Ellis said, “Tony will be an excellent addition to our coaching staff. He brings tremendous international experience and a fantastic energy to our program.”

Gustavsson also has experience coaching in the top men’s professional leagues in Sweden and Norway. He was head coach of Kongsvinger in Norway in 2010, and coached Hammarby in Sweden from 2007-09
