Durkin is the former soccer director for IMG Academies and head coach of the PDL Bradenton Academics.

Soccer Association and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association.
“I am very excited about working with the Boston Breakers this coming season," Durkin said in a statement. "I
thoroughly enjoyed my interaction with the team at the end of last season. The group of professionals that I encountered is talented and versatile and their work habits and eagerness put me at ease
straight off. I also must admit that I was quite impressed by the standard of play and caliber of players."
