Duluth FC is officially announcing the club has parted ways with Head Coach Joel Person.
Coach Person lead Duluth FC for two full NPSL seasons after assisting the club in a smaller role in 2017. Under Person’s watch, Duluth FC achieved levels of success previously unthinkable for the club, including three appearances in the U.S. Open Cup, four playoff matches, and of course the Midwest Regional Title, the highest trophy held by the club to date.
Person managed a 16-6-4 WDL record with Duluth and helped bring exciting faces to the club, including now-professional players like Damià Viader, while also managing long time Duluth favorites like Kyle Farrar, Joe Watt, and Gonnie Ben-Tal.
Person managed the club’s biggest games to date, from regional finals to matches against professional clubs like Saint Louis FC and Miami FC. In addition to his tireless work as a coach, Person was hands on in everything from recruiting to helping drive for away games.
Duluth FC wishes Coach Person the best with his future work and thanks him for two fantastic seasons of football.
