Scorpions relieve Alen Marcina of coaching duties


The San Antonio Scorpions have parted ways with Head Coach Alen Marcina, the team announced on Sunday afternoon.

The Scorpions thanked coach Marcina for his help throughout his time with the Scorpions.

“He has been with the club since we launched in 2012 and as head coach, he led us to a championship in 2014,” Scorpions general manager and team president, Howard Cornfield stated. “However, we just completed a very disappointing season and we feel a fresh start is needed for us to give our fans the winning soccer they expect and deserve.”

The Scorpions completed a noticeably less successful season this year in comparison to their championship 2014 campaign. They finished the Spring season with 12 points out of a possible 30 and they ended the fall season with 19 out of 60 possible points.

“We have already started our search for the next head coach of the San Antonio Scorpions and I anticipate we will have an announcement in the near future,” said Cornfield.

Marcina being let go is just one of many big changes expected for the Scorpions this winter. The question if Cornfield will return and the ownership of the team remains in the air.
