Dekalb County United are delighted to announce Tim Romanello as our next first team Head Coach. Tim currently serves as the men's head coach at Rock Valley College and brings some great experience to our club not only on the technical side but in his ability to create positive culture within the group. We're thrilled to have him!
Thanks to Sporting Director Eric Luzzi for leading the search over the last few months to find the right person to fill this role and move us forward in our pursuit of success on the pitch.
Over the next few weeks/months we will get Tim up to speed on all things DKCU including collaboration with the other great coaches on staff, evaluating our roster, recruiting and more as we prepare for the 2022 campaign.
Tim Romanello statement:
"DKCU is well-run, organized and forward-thinking in its day-to-day operations—that’s wanting to build, grow, expand and do things the right way. This opportunity allows me expand on some soccer-specific horizons while both being responsible that important balance in life while giving back to an additional community."
Eric Luzzi statement:
“I am extremely excited that we were able to secure Tim as our next head coach at DKCU. From my first conversation, it was clear that he would be an ideal option for us. He has a great soccer mind, he has a history of building and leading successful programs, and he has high level coaching experience at the NCAA Division I level. As impressive as all of this is, even more impressive is the relationships that he builds with players and the family atmosphere he builds within his teams. That aligns perfectly with our clubs’ values, and I am excited to work alongside Tim to continue to build something truly special at DKCU.”
