From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nils Johan Semb (born 24 February 1959) was the coach of the Norwegian national football team from 1998 to 2003, presiding over 68 matches.[1]

He led his team to the 2000 European Football Championship (a first for Norway).[1] Though successful, at least in the beginning of his tenure, he drew heavy criticism for his team's defense-oriented style, where long balls, counter-attacks and direct passes were hallmarks of their attacking style. He was replaced by Åge Hareide in 2003. He now is a commentator for the Norwegian tv channel TV 2.

He has his education from the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences.[2]
