Illinois Piasa Announce Jason Norsic as New Head Coach
The Illinois Piasa have announced the hiring of their former goalkeeper, Jason Norsic, to lead the team as Head Coach for the 2012-13 PASL season.
"Though unfortunate that the others couldn't continue, we are very happy that Jason is available and willing to take on this role. He is going to do a fantastic job. He knows the game and has a great work ethic and great relationship with the players," said Illinois Piasa General Manager Matt Williams.
"I am very thrilled and feel honored that I was selected as the head coach. Being a part of the PASL from the beginning, I have seen the great progress the league has brought to its teams. I believe that the owners and players have a great thing going from last year and I look forward to continuing the progress that coaches Joe, Justin, and Elvir ended on. With a great selection of players to choose from and a number of returning veterans to lead the way, I feel that we have the chance to not only win our division but to go on to win a championship. This first game will be very exciting. Detroit has a good team and with the way things ended last year, we are ready for retribution." said Illinois Piasa Head Coach Jason Norsic.
Illinois Piasa opens the 2012-13 PASL season on November 3 at 7:35 pm at The Sports Academy, Glen Carbon, Illinois against the Detroit Waza. Tickets are now on sale at www.illinoispiasa.com/ticket-information.
