WASHINGTON (AP) — Former U.S. national team and D.C. United forward Josh Wolff is retiring as a player and will be a full-time assistant coach with the Major League Soccer club.

United announced the 35-year-old Wolff's plans Wednesday.

He was a player-coach with the team this season, when United lost in the Eastern Conference finals.

Wolff played for the United States in the Olympics and World Cup alongside current United head coach Ben Olsen.

Wolff's professional career included stints with the Chicago Fire and Kansas City Wizards in MLS, and in Germany. In MLS, he had 80 goals and 49 assists in 267 regular-season games.

In 52 appearances for the U.S., Wolff had nine goals and five assists.
