Allen, Texas (June 25, 2021) – After six seasons, Simon Bozas steps down as the Dallas Sidekicks head coach. 

[What did it mean for you to be the head coach of the Sidekicks?] 

“It was a phenomenal experience. The ability to be able to develop players is one of my greatest accomplishments. I am a coach by nature, so the management, development and growth for soccer in Dallas is what I truly enjoy.” 

The Sidekicks were able to celebrate their efforts in the development of players as multiple Sidekicks were recognized across the MASL over the last several seasons. Highlighting several names who were recognized from the 2021 season: Felipe De Sousa, Brian Rodriguez, David Ortiz, and Scott Doney.  

In the 2019-20 season, fan favorite Lipe landed on the MASL All-Rookie team. Lipe was a top recruit that Bozas discovered when he took an international recruiting trip to Brazil and Mexico back in 2019. The Sidekicks staff wanted to find gamechangers, and Lipe was one of them. 

“Now today, we have prepared the next head coach with a solid foundation of 12-15 players that have already played for more than two seasons,” Bozas said. 

Bozas will continue to support the Dallas Sidekicks and the new head coach as they prepare for the upcoming season. “I will help provide any resources that the new coaching staff will need. Whatever I can do to help them, I will,” states Bozas.
