STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC has revealed its USL League One assistant coaches ahead of the club’s second professional season, featuring a mix of new and familiar faces. Ian Cameron, Jorge Gonzalez and Nick Jaramillo will serve as assistant coaches alongside Head Coach John Miglarese in 2020.
"We have assembled a top group of coaches to assist me this season,” Head Coach John Miglarese said. “They have a variety of strengths and experiences which will make for a stronger environment for our players.
"Adding Ian as a full-time coach on my staff was essential after witnessing his quality firsthand last summer as our Tormenta FC 2 coach,” Miglarese added. “He is a bright young coach with head coaching experience that our USL One, USL Two, and U19 Academy players will enjoy working with. Jorge has been with me from the beginning at Tormenta FC. His energy, knowledge and expertise in directing our strength and fitness protocols will be vital to our success. Nick comes highly recommended from some top coaches in the game. His work ethic, passion and skill as a goalkeeper coach will challenge our goalkeeping core and be a valued asset in our USL Academy."
Cameron joined the club in 2019 as Tormenta FC 2’s Head Coach, leading the team to a Deep South Division title and a Southern Conference title. The Glasgow native will continue to serve as the League Two Head Coach during the summer, while assisting the professional side.
