HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Tony DiCicco, who won an incredible 90 percent of his matches as the U.S. Women's National Team head coach from 1994-1999, is according to sources a candidate to become the first head coach of the expansion Houston Dash in the National Women's Soccer League.

Sources told FOX 26 Sports DiCicco had a preliminary meeting with Houston Dynamo president Chris Canetti Friday at BBVA Compass Stadium during the testimonial match honoring former Dynamo forward Brian Ching.

The Dynamo own the Dash franchise, which begins play in the spring of 2014.

DiCicco, who was already in Houston for a soccer clinic on Saturday, led the U.S. Women's Olympic team to its first gold medal in the 1996 Olympics, and three years later led the U.S. women to the World Cup championship with a victory over China.

As head coach of the U.S. Women's National Team, DiCicco's record was a staggering 103-8-8.

He is the only American to win a Women's World Cup, an Olympic gold medal and a U20 Women's World Cup (2008).

DiCicco coached the Boston Breakers of Women's Professional Soccer from 2009-2011.

He was elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2012.
