MOST COMMENTED

[NASL] Alen Marcina, who took as the interim coach of the San Antonio Scorpions midway through the NASL's fall season following the departure of Tim Hankinson, has been given the club's head coaching job.

Scorpions president and GM Howard Cornfield said of the six finalists for the position the former assistant coach was "without a doubt, the most focused, and best prepared candidate we met with."
 
"I am excited to have Alen as a part of our organization," said Scorpions owner Gordon Hartman in a statement. "He understands what we are about and is committed to our expectations of excellence, both on and off the pitch."
 
Marcina was born in Surrey, B.C., attended Barry University and played in five countries (Greece, Iceland, Denmark, Germany and New Zealand) before finishing up his career in the USL First Division.

The Scorpions replaced Hankinson, who had led them to the 2012 regular-season title in their first season in the league, after they got off to a 0-4-0 start in the 2013 fall season. They were 3-6-1 under Marcina but won their final two home games.
