AU Hires Women's Coach

Keeping things very local for the moment.....

The Insider has learned that American University will name David Bucciero as its women's head coach, replacing Michael Brady, who took an assistant's position under John Kerr Jr. with the Duke men's program. Bucciero, a Northern Virginia native, has been on the Boston University staff for seven years, the past three seasons as associate head coach (top assistant). He was a goalkeeper at James Madison University from 1991 to 1995. His complete bio is here.

Congrats to Bucciero!

Steve,

Please excuse my ignorance if this has already been covered, but is there any new info regarding the Howard head soccer coach? Last I heard the school was looking into the matter while Okoh was in jail.

Thanks!

No updates on Howard U. situation.

Okoh still locked up, last I heard.

Speaking of women's coaches, the NYT reports that Ian Sawyers will be coaching in the WPS. (According to this article, he is part of a couple that is known as the "anti-Beckhams".) It appears that the NY/NJ WPS team will be formed around an existing W-League team called the Sky Blues, and will continue to be called the Sky Blues. I had thought that only the Washington Freedom, and perhaps the Boston franchise, would be upgrades of existing amateur or semi-pro teams, and that all the other teams in WPS would be assembled from scratch.
