DiCicco not involved in potential Connecticut WPS bid

Former Boston Breakers head coach and Connecticut native Tony DiCicco said he has no involvement in the potential bid for a WPS expansion team in Connecticut, but said that he would be interested in coaching.

DiCicco stepped down as head coach of the Breakers last month, citing personal reasons. He said he needs to spend more time with his family in Connecticut and that being in Boston made that tough to accomplish.

But recent talk of a potential WPS expansion franchise in Connecticut could allow for DiCicco to coach in WPS without sacrificing significant family time. However, there is no truth to any speculation that DiCicco is already involved with the rumored expansion team. DiCicco said on Wednesday that there has been no contact between him and any potential Connecticut franchise, of which the would-be ownership group still remains unidentified.

He did, however, say that he would be interested in hearing more about the opportunities that could come from such a team.

“I would be interested in talking to someone about coaching a Connecticut team but I have not been approached at all,” DiCicco said.

DiCicco coached the Breakers from 2009-2011, making the playoffs in 2010 before losing to the Philadelphia Independence in the Super Semifinal. He guided the U.S. Women’s National Team to Olympic gold in 1996 and the famous 1999 World Cup victory during his tenure as national team coach from 1994-1999.
