She also served as an assistant on the 2008 and 2012 Olympic gold medal-winning squads. Ellis recently called in Thorns midfielder Allie Long and defender Nikki Marshall into camp prior to their friendly with Canada, while midfielder Amber Brooks made her USWNT debut in November 2013 and Tobin Heath, Alex Morgan, and Rachel Van Hollebeke are all established USWNT players, giving the Thorns 6 players in the WNT pool, as well as Mana Shim in the U23 pool.
