Frode Grodås (born 24 October 1964) is a football coach and former national football team goalkeeper originally from Hornindal, Norway.[1] Capped 50 times for his country,[2] he participated at the 1998 FIFA World Cup as well as being an unused substitute at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

Playing career

During his career he played for several Norwegian clubs. After his 8 year spell at LSK he spent six years abroad, in England and Germany and in Sevilla in Spain.[3] He won an English FA Cup medal in 1997 with Chelsea,[1] keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win. He rounded off his career in the Norwegian Division One team Hønefoss.

Coaching career

He has education from the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences.[4] After retiring as a player, Grodås received the highest level of football coach education in Norway, and took over HamKam from 1 December 2005. However, Grodås couldn't deliver the results, and Ham-Kam was relegated, and Grodås was fired on 7 November.

In December 2006 Grodås signed a three-year contract with Lillestrøm, as a goalkeeper-coach. Grodås is then back in what he regards as his home club. He has also acted as the third-choice goalkeeper for the club. In June 2007 Lillestrøm's first-choice goalkeeper Heinz Müller received a two match suspension after hitting Geir Ludvig Fevang with his left knee. As a result of this Grodås sat on the substitute bench as backup goalie, during the Tippeliga-match against Sandefjord later that month. He returned to the bench in August 2007, after an injury to Müller.

After Lillestrøm SK coach Tom Nordlie resigned on 29 May 2008 Grodås stepped in as caretaker, together with former Chelsea teammate Erland Johnsen.
