Tom Fitzgerald, 53, who led the UCLA soccer team to a National Collegiate Athletic Assn. title in 2002, died Saturday in Tampa, Fla., of injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident. He was on his way to Bradenton, Fla., to scout players at a tournament when the accident occurred.
Fitzgerald, who left UCLA last year, was the soccer coach at the University of Tampa. He had also coached the school's Spartans from 1987 to 1996, leading them to a Division II championship in 1994 and to the Final Four three times.
