[NWSL] Tom Durkin, who worked as an assistant late in the 2013 NWSL season, has been named the head coach of the Boston Breakers, succeeding Cat Whitehill, who finished the season as player-interim coach following the firing of Lisa Cole a month ago.

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

His coaching career took him to New Jersey JC Union County College and Division III Rutgers-Newark and Texas JC Richland College, where he coached both the men and women. He was an assistant with the MLS Tampa Bay Mutiny and worked for the North Texas State 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."
