PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Alex Hoedlmoser is the new men’s speed coach for the U.S. Alpine skiing team, replacing Andreas Evers, who was fired last month after being found guilty in Austria of money laundering.

Hoedlmoser had been head coach of the U.S. women, working with Olympic gold medalists Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso.

The team announced the switch Wednesday.

Hoedlmoser spent 17 years working with the U.S. women, including the last four as head coach. That position is not being filled right now.

Hoedlmoser calls the job change “extremely motivating.”

Evers, an Austrian, was fired April 24, hours after being sentenced to four months in prison plus 20 months on probation.
