Phelps retired after winning his last six medals at the London Games, taking his tally to 22 total medals. His 18 golds include the eight he won in eight events at the Beijing Games.

Bowman, who was also an assistant coach for the US Olympic swimming team in 2004, 2008 and 2012, said he planned to take at least a year off from coaching.

The firm reviewed Russia’s performance after the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games and is now working with the Brazilian Olympic Committee to develop their sports performance plans in the build-up to the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Bowman said in the release that he hopes to “make a positive contribution to the development of swimming worldwide.”
