Michael Phelps' longtime coach has a new job - consultant.

Bob Bowman, who guided Phelps to a record 18 golds and 22 medals overall at the Olympics, has joined TSE Consulting in its sports performance division.

Phelps retired after winning his last six medals at the London Games, becoming the most decorated athlete in Olympic history. Bowman plans to take at least a year off from coaching.

TSE is headed by Steve Roush, former chief of sports performance for the U.S. Olympic Committee. The company reviewed Russia's performance after the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games and is working with the Brazilian Olympic Committee as the country prepares to host the next Summer Games in Rio.

Bowman says he hopes to "make a positive contribution to the development of swimming worldwide.''
