FIU's stadium manager takes MLS gig

FIU stadium manager Anthony Mozzicato, who oversaw many of the upgrades made to The Cage, has accepted a job with the Sporting Kansas City, and will run the team's new facility, set to open in June 2011. His exact title will be manager of operations for Sporting KC Stadium.

"I would like to thank FIU Athletic Director Pete Garcia and Senior Associate AD Julie Berg for giving me the opportunity to manage FIU Stadium over the last several years as Stadium Manager." Mozzicato said in a statement.  "I am also very appreciative of the working relationship and friendship that I have gained with FIU Football Head Coach Mario Cristobal and I look forward to watching him continue to build FIU Football into a nationally recognized program.  I will always be an FIU Golden Panther."

FIU has not yet named a successor, but it is believed the school will consider external candidates.

Vaya con Dios!

As a season ticket holder, I always saw a stadium that was managed extremely well. Anthony, you will be missed. Thanks for all the good work.

Stadium is always in perfect conditions thanks to you and your staff.. Best of luck in K.C.

Can't wait to opening day.. Should be one of the biggest crowed in school history (I hope).

Go FIU!

Anthony,

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication throughout your tenure. Maybe we can lineup a bowl game in KC for FIU against a Conf USA opponent ?

You will be missed !!

I concur with all of the above posters in expressing nothing but admiration for the job that Anthony did as the FIU Stadium Manager.

Anthony, Good luck and congratulations on your career move!!

Anthony,

It has been a real pleasure getting to know you during your tenure at FIU. Your dedication to this program and your diligence in managing our stadium has been greatly appreciated, and your presence here will be missed. Thank you for all your hard work, and good luck in Kansas City.

Dear new stadium manager:

Move the student section to the other (west) side so the students can see the scoreboard and not have the sun in our eyes for most of the game. And let us enter from the ground level and not make us walk up that stupid ramp.

Anthony,

Congrats on the promotion! Best of luck on your new job, enjoy the new Saab...
