Coach Movement and 2018 Assignments

Monkey

SILVER ELITE
So by now most coaches know whether their contact is going to be renewed and clubs know which coaches plan to leave. I find it interesting this year that not a lot of clubs are listing coaching assignments for next season. Is this because they are anticipating a big shuffle still to come? Do DA coaches have a different length of contact since their season is only half way thru?

Looking at Albion, they have already had some tryouts but are not willing to confirm coaching assignments. When looking at DA standing and which coaches have been showing up to games, I noticed that Toumi's name is gone. He is still listed on the Albion website so is he going to be coaching other teams at Albion? If so which teams? Also Tony Scheri is no longer listed on their website.

That would be a step down for Toumi. I knew he would never last a full season at Albion. He probably went in there being made a million promises but instead Albion tried to make him the poster child for DPL. He had too much respect in the community to allow Albion to use him this way. I wonder if Surf picked him up? Rumor has it that there is a lot happening there especially on the girls side that would be a perfect fit for Toumi.

Albion always seems to have high coach turnover from year to year. From our previous experience, Albion typically didn't disclose coaching assignments until the middle of tryouts at the earliest. Albion is club centric and as their youngers DOC told us you're committing to play for the club and not a coach.

Surf would not be a perfect fit for Toumi. The question many will be asking is how many girls does he take with him, like he did at sharks and csc?

I have a player that plays for Albion. While the DOC may want you to be committed to the club no matter who the coach is, ultimately the coaching assignment is the most important factor for me as a parent.

I just looked at their website and Toumi is still on there. However I do not see Scheri’s name anywhere.

Yes Toumi is still on the Albion website but he is no longer listed on the US Soccer DA site for Albion. Does this mean that he is staying with Albion but no longer coaching DA? I wish I knew the coaching assignments for next year because it could impact our decision.

He shows on the Albion site as their USDA Director still.

Time will tell...

If you are considering Albion DA, their season doesn’t end until July, so you have many months before your DD could join the team anyway.

Toumi and Scheri are both gone. No longer at Albion. Rumors flying on who and how but a letter from Albion stated
Toumi stepped down

You can't spell "I'm Out" without the letters T-U-O-M-I.

PS- I know nothing about this coach. Just trying (poorly) to make a joke.

But that was a good one! I wonder where Tuomi will go to now.....back to CSC, back to Sharks? Hmmmm Time will tell.

Almost always a bad idea to follow a coach to a new club. Always a bad idea when that club is Albion or Surf.

Why is it a bad idea? We picked the coach not the club. So if an inferior coach was coming in to take the place of the exiting coach, I would have had my kids leave with the coach.

I can't remember one that worked out. These are extra strange times so maybe there are worse choices. Anyway. I doubt following him and some of the other CSC coaches around has worked out for most.

I call BS. You don't have a clue who followed any of the CSC coaches and thus have no idea whether it worked out. Having known plenty of CSC families going back to the Howie days, I don't know one family that regreted following their coach whether it was to Freeflow, Rebels, Surf, Sharks etc. Not that CSC wasn't good, they just could not hang on to some great coaches. And if I am not mistaken there were some Toumi groups on this site that followed him to Sharks and could not say enough positive things about him.
 
I heard Toumi chose to leave and that Scheri did not have a choice.
Same as I heard. Heard some really scary stuff about Scheri that I won’t repeat because I haven’t personally verified. I’m sure Albion will come up with something to replace them..money talks.

Not sure Toumi would be welcome back at sharks.

While we are on the topic of speculating why coaches are leaving.... Rumor is that some surf coaches are leaving and will be replaced by former surf coaches?

Tis the season for team and coach shakeups
