The Houston Dash have reached a deal to make Fran Alonso the new head coach of the National Women’s Soccer League club, multiple sources confirmed to The Equalizer. An official announcement is expected soon.
The Spaniard will depart Celtic FC after three and half seasons leading the Glasgow club in the Scottish Women’s Premier League. Celtic (14-1-1) currently sits second in the league, three points behind local Glasgow rivals Rangers FC.
Under Alonso’s leadership, Celtic twice won the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup but could not capture the SWPL league title. However, Celtic did finish runner-up in two of Alonso’s three seasons and also qualified for the UEFA Women’s Champions League preliminary rounds. Known for his passion and flair, he closes out his time in Glasgow with a 79% win record, and an average of 3.72 goals scored per match.
A Houston Dash spokesperson declined to comment. A spokesperson from Celtic did not reply to a request for comment.
