"It's a huge honour and I'm very excited to get started with this group of players and staff as we work towards continued success for this programme," he said in a statement.
"All of the talented coaches and players that have come before have built a legendary tradition of excellence and I'm committed to working very hard to continue to move this programme forward."
Sweden up first for new US coach
Andonovski has experience of coaching USWNT veterans Megan Rapinoe and Becky Sauerbrunn.
The 43-year-old's first game in charge will come against Sweden on 7 November.
