WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW head men's soccer coach Aidan Heaney has announced the addition of Zach Haines to his coaching staff for the 2012-13 season.
"I am delighted that Zach has joined our staff as an assistant coach'" said Heaney. "He is a young, energetic coach who will be a big help to the program, both on and off the field. I know our players will benefit from his experiences and he will learn a lot about the college game as he pursues his career in college coaching."
Haines comes to the Seahawks from the Triangle Futbol Club, where he served as the Assistant Director of Youth Development. While with TFC, Haines coached the TFC U20 men's team to consecutive USL South Atlantic Division titles in 2010 and 2011 and a national championship final four appearance.
Prior to working with TFC, Haines was the head coach at East Chapel Hill High School for two seasons. During that tenure, he guided the program to a 30-13-1 record at the 4A level and was ranked 13th in the state in 2010.
Haines played at UNC before injuries shortened his career in 2006. But he returned in 2009 as a volunteer where he audited training sessions and worked with game day operations.
"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work at UNCW. It is a wonderful university with much to offer. Coach Heaney and Coach Bundy are outstanding coaches and people. They have brought so much success to the soccer program, and I am looking forward to helping them continue the tradition."
