Oakland County Football club today announced the hiring of new head coach Vinnie Vasilevski.
Vasilevski will lead Oakland County FC in its inaugural 2020 USL League Two season after recent stops as assistant coach at both Northwood University and University of Michigan-Dearborn; Vasilevski also serves as the current Romeo High School varsity head coach.
Prior to entering the coaching realm, Vasilevski played collegiately at Tiffin University (‘06 & ‘07), Saginaw Valley State (‘08), and Northwood (’11) with a one and a half year professional stint in Sweden with IFK Trelleborg (’09-’10).
“When we interviewed Vinnie for the first time, we instantly became enamored with his vision and love for the culture we are trying to build,” said Theo Foutris, Co-Owner. “All-in-all, Vinnie is a perfect complement to where we’ve been and where we are striving to go with our recent transition to USL League Two. We’re thrilled to have him on board and excited for this new chapter for the club.”
Coach Vasilevski aims to have his full staff in place by early January. We also would like to welcome Vinnie’s wife Danielle and daughter Viviana to the OCFC family.
“I love the grassroots approach by this club and honored to be part of the vision moving forward”, Vasilevski said, “this team is going to show hard work, energy, and enthusiasm, all while making our community proud to be supporters. Thank you to Theo and Nick for this opportunity; I’m very excited to begin competing at the USL 2 level.
“Our highly competitive roster will not just be looked at as the ‘new team on the block’, but as a formidable squad ready to make its name in the premier pre-professional league in the United States.”
