Welcome to Black & Gold Banneret Summer Sessions. Over the summer, we will do a series of extended interviews with former UCF coaches and players from all sports, talking about their memories at UCF, and what they’re up to now. On our first of our Black & Gold Banneret Summer Sessions, we welcome former UCF and current UCLA Women’s Soccer Head Coach Amanda Cromwell. Amanda talks about her memories at UCF, her experience winning the national title in her first year in Westwood, and the legacy left behind by the late Tony DiCicco, who coached Amanda with the United States Women’s National Team in the 90s.

Here is the interview:
