Boston Breakers

Tony DiCicco, who guided the United States to the Women's World Cup title in 1999, was named coach of the Boston Breakers yesterday. DiCicco, 59, a Wethersfield, Conn., native, is employed as a commentator by ESPN for Women's World Cup games and will begin working with the Breakers after the Sept. 30 final.
DiCicco was commissioner of the Women's United Soccer Association in 2002 and 2003, the league's final seasons. The new women's professional soccer league is expected to launch in 2009 with seven teams - Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, and Washington.
As US national team coach, DiCicco had a 103-8-8 record from 1994-99, before resigning to spend more time with his family. DiCicco was assistant coach for the US when it won the first Women's World Cup in 1991 in China and was head coach of the '96 Olympic championship team.
