Tony DiCicco, a U.S. National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee who coached the women’s national team to a 1996 Olympic gold medal and the 1999 World Cup title, died Monday evening. He was 68 years old.
The cause of death is unknown, but in a family statement posted by his son, Anthony, on Tuesday, it revealed that he had endured an illness. He passed away at his home in the company of his family.
In addition to his success on the senior women’s level (a 105-8-8 record), DiCicco coached the U.S. Under-20 national team to World Cup glory in 2008 and went on to coach the Boston Breakers in WPS from 2009-2011.
May His Soul Rest in Peace.
