FULLERTON, Calif. – The Cal State Fullerton men's soccer program and Head Coach George Kuntz announced the hiring of new assistant coach Jorge Reyes Monday afternoon.
"We are excited to announce the addition of Jorge Reyes to our full-time coaching staff," Kuntz said. "He is familiar with our team being a student assistant for three years while recently finishing his master's degree at CSF. He is a very knowledgeable coach who has a bright future in the game and we welcome him to our Titan staff."
Reyes spent the last three seasons with the Titans as a student manager before now being promoted to the teams full-time assistant coach. Prior to joining Fullerton in 2015, Reyes was an assistant coach at Golden West College from 2011 to 2013.
Before heading to the collegiate level, Reyes was an assistant coach for Atlante in the third division in Mexico from 2007 to 2009. He has also been the head coach for the CDA Slammers youth team in Huntington Beach since 2015 along with being an assistant coach for the girls varsity team at Westminster High School.
Reyes started off his collegiate playing career at Yavapai College in Arizona before coming back to California to play at Santa Ana College. One year later Reyes was playing at UC Irvine under Head Coach George Kuntz while playing alongside assistant coach Carlos Aguilar in 2009. In his time with the Anteaters, UCI won the Big West Championship in both seasons while advancing to the round of 32 NCAA Tournament.
"Reyes was an excellent Division I player that I recruited at my former institution and was a catalyst for our national prominence and Big West Championship," Kuntz said.
Following his time at UCI, Reyes played for the OC Pateadores in the PDL for two years before heading overseas to play for Kaposvar Rakoczi in the first division in Hungary from 2013 to 2014.
