Norway coach Åge Hareide has named Ola By Rise as his assistant following former No2 Stig Inge Bjørnebye's departure to take charge of IK Start.
The 45-year-old By Rise worked under Hareide at Rosenborg BK before taking the top job following the latter's appointment as Norway coach in December 2003. A former international goalkeeper, he parted company with the Trondheim club the following October and has since worked as a radio producer.
By Rise has agreed a contract until the end of the year and will therefore be on the bench for the opening rounds of Norway's UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying campaign. The Scandinavians begin in Hungary on Saturday 2 September before Moldova arrive in Oslo for Norway's first home game the Wednesday after. Turkey and Greece are expected to provide the stiffest opposition in Group C.
