South Coast Wolves wasted little time finding a replacement for their top job, announcing former player Jacob Timpano as the club’s new head coach on Friday.
The 29-year-old will take over immediately following Nahuel Arrarte’s resignation from the position on Wednesday.
He will be in charge for the remainder of the 2015 season. He is to be joined by assistant coaches Dez Giraldi and Alfredo Esteves.
The announcement comes less than 48 hours after Arrarte sensationally quit the club midway citing ‘internal and external factors that won’t allow the current coaching structure to work to the best of their ability’.
Arrarte opted to walk away, as well as assistant coach Jason Spencer and under-20’s boss Osvaldo Riva.
The Wolves released a two-page statement on Thursday announcing the trio’s departure.
The statement also detailed a number of difficulties currently facing the club. It included matters relating to the Wolves’ lack of facilities, finances and poor attendance at games.
Arrarte did not wish his decision to be linked to the club’s other issues.
His replacement, who was the Wolves Club Captain a season ago, will pick up the coaching duties for the club’s training session on Friday ahead of this weekend’s meeting with Blacktown City.
Timpano had been signed to Dapto-Dandaloo in the Illawarra Premier League but an ankle injury has kept him sidelined for the entire campaign.
