Women’s World cup winning coach Jill Ellis has announced that she will be stepping down from the women’s national soccer team in early October.

Ellis said her decision to step aside as coach of the reigning World Cup champions after its victory tour was in line with the timeline she envisioned when she was first named to the job in May 2014.

Ellis won eight tournaments as U.S. coach including the FIFA Women’s world cup twice, CONCACAF Women’s Championship twice.

In her statement, Ellis said the “timing is right to move on and the program is positioned to remain at the pinnacle of women’s soccer.”
“Change is something I have always embraced in my life and for me and my family this is the right moment,” she said.

Ellis was also named the FIFA World Coach of the Year and CONCACAF Coach of the Year for Women’s Soccer  in 2015.
