KSAL StaffDecember 6, 2013

The women who coached the U.S. women’s soccer team to two Olympic gold medals will be a distinguished professor at Bethany College in Lindsborg.

The college announced Thursday that Pia Sundhage will start in January as this year’s Distinguished Pearson Professor of Swedish Studies.

Sundhage will teach a one-credit-hour class, work with Bethany’s soccer team and other regional teams and make several public presentations.

The U.S. women’s soccer teams she coached in 2008 to 2012 won gold medals in Beijing and London and took second place in the 2011 FIFA World Cup.

She returned to Sweden to coach that country’s national team in December 2012.

The Salina Journal reports Sundhage’s one-hour class will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Jan. 6 to 23.
