Mons Ivar Mjelde (born 17 November 1967 in Osterøy) is a former footballer and is currently head coach for the Norwegian Tippeliga club Start.



During his active career, Mjelde spent two seasons at FK Austria Wien, two and a half seasons at Lillestrøm SK and a total of 7 seasons at SK Brann.He also played 1 season in Bryne FK - before he went to Lillestrøm. Towards the end of his career, he was loaned out to Sogndal IL in 2001. Mjelde scored 72 goals in 160 matches for SK Brann, earning himself and the team silver medals in 1997 and 2000, bronze medals and a cup silver as losing finalists in 1999 and an advancement to the quarter final in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1997, in which they were eliminated by Liverpool FC. After returning to Brann from Austria in 1996, Mjelde scored 19 goals in 15 league appearances, earning him the Kniksen award as "striker of the year". Mons Ivar played 3 games and scored 2 goals for Norway.


His first four years as a senior coach has seen Mjelde win both the league and the cup in Norway. Retiring as a player after the 2001 season, Mjelde became the new coach for Brann's reserve team in the Norwegian Second Division. The year after, Brann's main coach, Teitur Thordarson was fired after delivering a catastrophic season. In January 2003, after only one year's experience as a coach, Mons Ivar Mjelde was appointed head coach in SK Brann. The season resulted in Brann finishing 6th, a major improvement from last year. The following year he guided Brann to a bronze medal in the premiership. They also won the cup, the first trophy in 22 years. 2005 however, was a disappointing season with Brann only managed a 6th place finish. 2006 was a better one for Mjelde and Brann who finished second, only behind Rosenborg BK. In 2007, his coaching career hit new heights as he took Brann to their first league title in 44 years, six points ahead of Stabæk.

On 7 October 2008, Mons Ivar Mjelde announced that the 2008 season would be his last.[1] Mjelde was officially appointed as manager for Bryne FK on 1 June 2009.[2] In 2011 he coached Valestrand Hjellvik FK for two games before being snapped up by IK Start.[3]
