New Director of Girls Senior Programming

Dear Triangle United Families,

Triangle United Soccer Association (TUSA) is proud to announce that effective immediately, Rich Bryan will serve as the TUSA Director of Senior Girls Programming (13U-19U). Rich will be responsible for the continued growth of the clubs vision and goals within the senior girl's program both on and off the field with players, families and coaches.

“Rich has done a tremendous job getting to know to our players and families off the field while at the same time developing strong teams and players that have been successful on the field.  We look forward to Rich putting all of his energy and expertise into growing our senior girl's program in the future.” John Cirillo, Director of Soccer.

Having joined TUSA in March 2012, Rich initially joined the club as a YDA coach and has become a key part of the clubs operations both within the coaching side and the administration over the last few years. During the past two years, Rich has raised the standards within the Director of Operations role as well as on the field with his teams both within the girls game and boys game. It is in part due to these experiences that we are excited to have Rich guide the senior girl's program moving forward.                

Rich is currently working towards his USSF A License (expected 2019) as well as currently holding USSF B License, UEFA B License, USC Goalkeeper Diploma 3 and USC Futsal diploma.

“I’m excited and honored to undertake this position at a time of great change and excitement within the girls game. My goal is to create a clear pathway and culture for all-out female players whilst instilling key life skills and a strong sense of community within what we do. We are blessed to be a close-knit program with deep-rooted ties to our area within Chapel Hill and Durham. I’m excited to get to work and meet many new faces who are committed to achieving great things within the program” Rich Bryan, Director of Senior Girls Programming.

Rich will continue to occupy the Director of Operations role along with his current position.

Rich will be introduced at the clubs open house Thursday May 9th 2019. Time and venue to be confirmed shortly.
