NONA FC ANNOUNCES NEW HEAD COACH FOR 2024 USL 2 SEASON

December 15th, 2023 | 12:01PM EST

Nona Football Club has announced this Friday the signing of Dave Jacobs to be the new Head Coach of the Longhorns!

The announcement comes with huge anticipation on social media and amongst the Nona faithful, as the club teased on Wednesday the arrival of their “new boss”. Jacobs has been introduced as the 2024 USL 2 Head Coach for the 3rd year Longhorns in hopes that the team can continue to build on the success of former manager, Guilherme Henry, who departed the club in mutual terms earlier in the winter.

Dave Jacobs comes with a huge baggage of experience in professional soccer and has successful stints in USL 2, most recently with known Longhorn opposition Texas United, NPSL, and USL’s predecessor the USL-PDL league. Jacobs is also a known name in the world of college sports as a recruiter and head coach, currently in charge of Trine University’s Men’s program, where he has found continuous post-season success, with an overall 62% winning rate and taking the Thunder to their very first NCAA tournament appearance!

“Dave is a fierce competitor and proven winner at every program he has been a part of. We are extremely happy to have him on board with Nona for the 2024 USL 2 season and we look forward to seeing where he can take this program. We hope this can be a big turning point for the program both on and off the field with Dave at the helm” said Nona FC President and Nona Sports CEO Fabio Silva.

When asked about what he expects from Nona FC and the organization, Jacobs had the following to say:

“I feel very blessed to be joining such a great organization, with such a faithful and electric fanbase like Nona FC. I hope that I can help continue the success and growth of the Longhorns name not only in Orlando but the entire country too. I’m so happy to be here, and so happy to bleed orange with this community.”

Dave will present himself for preseason in the Spring of the new year, but until then stay tuned in all the Nona FC social media for more updates on new signings, Dave Jacobs, and other exciting things we have to come!
