Nowak to coach U23 team trying to make Olympics

CHICAGO -- Peter Nowak will coach the U.S. Under-23 men's team that will attempt to qualify for next year's Olympics.

The 43-year-old Nowak, an assistant coach for the full national team since December, takes over for Bob Bradley, currently the head coach of the full team.

"Qualifying for the Olympic Games is one of the major goals of our national team programs, and we believe Peter is the right man to lead our efforts," said U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati. "He is a proven winner as both a player and a coach at the highest levels, and his ability to mentor young players will be particularly valuable as we continue the process of developing teams that can be very competitive at the international level."

Nowak will continue to assist Bradley with the full national team. The final round of CONCACAF qualifying for Beijing will be early next year.

"We have 12 months to prepare for the most important tournament in this age group, and I am anxious to build on the work that we have already started with many of these players," Nowak said. "As we saw in the U-20 World Cup, we have some great young talent, and I will spend the next couple of months getting a good look at the whole group. Our job is not only to qualify for the Olympic Games, but to continue to prepare these players for service with the full national team."

A former captain of the Polish national team, Nowak's professional career spanned 23 years and five countries. In 2005, he was voted to the MLS all-time team after playing with the Chicago Fire

Nowak also coached D.C. United for three seasons.
