Tor Ole Skullerud


Date of birth: 10 December 1970
Playing career: 
Kongsvinger IL, IF Ready, SK Frigg, Grue IL, Ullern IF
Coaching career: 
Ullern IF, Bærum SK, Norway Under-18s, Norway Under-19s, Vålerenga Fotball, Norway Under-21s (assistant coach), Norway Under-21s

• Having plied his trade as a midfielder in the lower reaches of Norwegian football, Skullerud turned his hand to coaching at Ullern. He consequently steered Bærum to promotion to Norway's elite division in 2002 at the tender age of 31.

• Negotiated Norway's safe passage to the UEFA European U19 Championship three years later and was rewarded with the Vålerenga job in 2008. The club lifted the Norwegian Cup by overwhelming Stabæk Fotball 4-1 in the final, but Skullerud resigned the following season, citing a string of poor results as reason for his departure. 

• Became Per Joar Hansen's assistant in the Norway U21 set-up in 2010, and continued in that role as they qualified for this summer's finals in Israel, courtesy of a 5-4 aggregate defeat of France in the play-offs.

• When Hansen left for Rosenborg BK in early 2013, Skullerud was chosen to fill the void. "I'm really looking forward to working with this great group of players that have shown a great togetherness," he said, on accepting the role.
