Knut Tørum
Knut Kjartan Tørum (born 16 August 1971 in Bergenmarker) is a Norwegianmarker football coach. He is currently the coach of the Norwegian Premier League club IK Start. He's a former manager for Moss FK, leading the team to the Tippeliga play-off's in 2005. He's also a former assistant coach for Stabæk Fotball.

In August 2006, Tørum (at the time the clubs assistant coach) took over as substitute head-coach for Rosenborg after Per Mathias Høgmo took a two month sick leave. His take-over was very successful starting with eight league wins in a row (a club record) and earned Tørum the title coach of the month for August and October 2006. Rosenborg stated that Høgmo would return to his job as the clubs head coach after the season, despite Tørums success. Tørum led Rosenborg in the last rounds of the premiership, and secured Rosenborg the goldmedals. On 31 October, Per Matias Høgmo decided to retire as football-coach and quit his job in Rosenborg, and Tørum was offered the job as new head-coach in Rosenborg BKmarker which he took. Tørum was awarded coach of the year for 2006.

He was not able to gain the same success in the 2007 domestic season, but Rosenborg managed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League where the club impressed in the group stage with a 1-1 draw away against and beating Valencia CF 2-0 twice. He resigned the day after the latter match against Valencia.

He has his education from the Norwegian School of Sport Sciencesmarker.
