Tony DiCicco joins Westwood One as a soccer analyst for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
An integral figure that put women’s soccer on the map in the U.S. and globally, DiCicco built an impressive run as the U.S. Women’s National Team head coach from 1994-1999. He led the USA to its first gold medal in the 1996 Olympic Games and most notably was at the helm of the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion team that defeated China.
As the U.S. Women’s head coach, DiCicco won a staggering 105 games – over 90 percent of his matches – in compiling a 105-8-8 international record. This is the most wins and the highest winning percentage in USA International history, men or women. DiCicco is the only American coach to win a Women’s World Cup, an Olympic gold, and a U-20 Women’s World Cup (2008 – Chile).
DiCicco has served as TV soccer analyst for Fox Sports and for ESPN, including every World Cup since his retirement.
