The Baltimore Bohemians announced today that head coach Steve Nichols has decided to step down from his role with the club. Nichols was recently hired as the head coach of Loyola University’s men’s team.
“I have enjoyed my time with the Bohemians and I am honored that they chose me to lead the squad for their first two seasons,” said Nichols. “My new position at Loyola will require all of my focus, and I did not want the Bohs to suffer as a result of this.”
In two seasons under Nichols, the Bohs compiled a record of 13 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses in regular season play. He led the team to their first playoff berth last season, and the club’s second-place finish qualified them for the 2014 U.S. Open Cup, the oldest continual competition in the United States. The Bohs led the Premier Development League in scoring in 2013. In only two seasons, five of Nichols’s players were either drafted or signed to professional contracts.
“We wish Steve all the best in this new chapter of his coaching career,” stated Bohs General Manager James Tirabassi. “He was a great asset for our organization, and laid the groundwork for future success at the club.”
The Bohs have not immediately named a replacement.
