Jonathon Velotta enters his first season as a graduate assistant coach with the Louisville men's soccer program. He will assist the coaching staff in their day-to-day needs and will be responsible for overseeing the team's community service projects.
"I am delighted that we have been able to attract Jonathon Velotta to our program," said Colavecchia. "He is a soccer junkie and will be a great addition to our staff. Jonathon will work on several projects which include getting our team involved in the community."
Velotta finished his career as a four-year starter at Brescia University last year. He played central midfielder and back and helped them to three consecutive conference championships from 2000-2002. He was named team captain and garnered first team All-KIAC honors his senior year.
Velotta has spent the last six seasons coaching club soccer in Owensboro. He holds a USSF "B" License.
The Owensboro, Ky, native graduated from Brescia University in May earning a bachelor's degree in English.
