Trond Amundsen (born 30 March 1971) is a Norwegian football coach. He is the head coach of Fredrikstad FK after the resignation of Tom Freddy Aune earlier in 2012. Amundsen was head coach of Løv-Ham from 2007 to 2009, and had a short spell as head coach of Kongsvinger.

Coaching career[edit]

Amundsen worked as coach at Santos FC's under-21 team, before he moved to the Norwegian club Kongsvinger where he became a part of the coaching team.[1][2] In 2007 Amundsen became head coach of the second tier club Løv-Ham,[1] and after two years at the club, he signed a contract for two more years.[3] His work with the club linked him with the vacant job at Sandefjord,[2] but he stayed on at Løv-Ham until he was appointed head coach of the newly promoted Tippeligaen club Kongsvinger ahead of the 2010-season.[4]

On 12 April 2010, less than half a year after he signed for Kongsvinger, Amundsen resigned as head coach after three points in five matches,[5] and cited disagreement with the management of the club on the way forward as reason for withdrawing from the club. One month later he joined Fredrikstad's coaching team.[6]

When Fredrikstad's head coach Tom Freddy Aune resigned on 10 May 2012, Fredrikstad appointed Amundsen as head coach until the end of the season.[7]
