Managerial careerEdit

Božičić started off his managerial career at FK Milicionar in 1998 as a 32 year old, who he led for one season.

After Milicionar, from 2003 to 2005, Božičić spent those years as manager of the under-19 team of Red Star Belgrade, with whom he won the Serbian under-19 First League in the 2003–04 season. He then managed FK Bežanija where he also had success, winning the 2005–06 Serbian First League and getting the club promoted to the Serbian SuperLiga.

After a one season stint at First League of RS club FK Borac Bosanski Šamac, Božičić became the new manager of Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina club FK Modriča. He had big success with Modriča, winning the club's historic 2007–08 Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina title.[1] After leaving Modriča in June 2008,[2] he returned to Bežanija who he managed for one more year.

In 2011, he was in charge of FK Rudar Kakanj, while in 2012, he was the manager of FK Borac Banja Luka, with whom he won the 2011–12 Republika Srpska Cup, and from November 2013 to March 2014, he led FK Slavija Sarajevo.

Two years after getting sacked at Slavija, Božičić held the position of head coach of National Premier League club Montego Bay United from August to December 2016.[3][4][5] After Montego Bay, he had stints at Austrian club FK Borac Vienna and Serbian clubs FK Sinđelić Beograd, FK Jedinstvo Surčin, FK Jagodina Tabane and FK Radnik Surdulica.

On 4 October 2019, Božičić was announced as the new manager of Bosnian Premier League club NK Čelik Zenica.[6] In his first game as manager, Čelik beat NK Široki Brijeg at home 2–0 in a league match, only one day after Božičić came to the club, on 5 October.[7] His first loss as Čelik manager was in a 2–0 away loss against FK Sarajevo on 18 October 2019.[8] On 3 December 2019, Čelik and Božičić decided to terminate his contract on mutual agreement.[9]
