That's what it says.
Nice find dcajedi!
Not trying to turn this into a "Future of the WUSA" thread, but I'm assuming Tony can't coach the team from Connecticut or wherever he lives so he'll be in China fulltime I guess sometime next month or the beginning of the new year. I'm guessing he'll be more focused on the team rather than trying to revive the WUSA. So I wonder who takes over that position?
Is that $300,000 a year or over the life of the contract?
It's not public yet.....But WUSA has been handed over to Foudy and some women from YAHOO Sports!
So how far back up the ladder did China just climb?
If Tony does for them what he did for us...
I was hoping this meant that WUSA would finally die.
I thought the Norwegian Nat team the one that after him ...
It doesn't sound like a done deal yet.....
Tony wants this job-he has lobbied for it before. In case no one remembers:
From Dec, 2003:
"On November 15th. the CFA started selecting a new head coach for the national team and according to Beijing media, former USA Head Coach Tony DiCicco expressed his interest in the position to the association. But finallyWang Haiming was the winner."
He's not going - his family was not too excited about the prospect of living in China.
sorry guys, but any chance of dicicco taking the job are slim to none. seeing as i play for his premiere team i can show you the email.
There are a couple of articles circulating about my coaching of the China team. Just to make sure that you all are clear on where that stands…I have not accepted a position to coach the Chinese Women’s National Team and although there is a slight chance I may, it is unlikely.
I have said it before and it is very true, I really enjoy coaching this team and all of you and also I am very invested in seeing this club continue to grow and evolve. Yes, the chance to coach internationally again and in the Beijing Olympics is exciting BUT there are many things including our team factoring into my decision.
See you this weekend.
