Former UNCW alumni Giovanni Vlahos returned to Wilmington from California after serving as executive director of the Poway Soccer Club (2017-2020). Beforehand, Vlahos worked as head coach of Cal-South’s Olympic Development Program (2013-2018) and assistant coach at San Diego State University (2013-2014).
