FC Diablos would like to announce that the club has contracted Rian James for the second time in club history as head coach for the 2022 season. The current Bloomington Raiders head coach and former FC Diablos head coach and assistant coach comes from working with multiple youth teams in the area such as FC Central Illinois, Illinois Fire Juniors, Normal Community West High School, Normal Community High School, Mahomet-Seymour, and Bloomington High School. Rian has already begun the recruiting process for the 2022 season.
"We are excited for Rian to take charge for the second time. Rian joined FC Diablos during our first years as we were developing an identity. He took charge as head coach during COVID, the toughest time in our club's history. I think he deserves this position in a regular season!" - Roberto A Yepez, Club President.
