ROCHESTER, Mich. – Adrian College men's soccer assistant coach Joey Tinnion has been named the head coach of the Rochester College Warriors the school announced Tuesday, April 23.
Tinnion spent one year at Adrian as the assistant of head coach Ryan McDonald and helped the Bulldogs return to the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Championship game this year to make it two years in a row that AC has competed for an MIAA title. Four Bulldogs received All-Conference nominations and the team had three MIAA Player of the Week awards during his tenure as well, in addition to senior Tad Davis earning CoSIDA Academic All-American® distinction. Coach McDonald was thankful for coach Tinnion's contributions this year, saying: "We were very happy to have Joey at Adrian for the last year. He brought so much to the Adrian program and we are excited to see where he takes the Rochester program. We wish him luck and are looking forward to having him down for a game next year!"
Tinnion is a native of Macomb, Michigan, located 13 miles from the campus of Rochester College. This will be his first head coaching job in collegiate soccer. Tinnion won't stay away from Adrian for long, as the Warriors are set to visit the Black and Gold on Wednesday, Sep. 18 at 7 p.m. in an NCAA-NAIA match. That match is part of a four-game home stand for Adrian, the longest stretch of home matches on the 2019 schedule. The Bulldogs open the season on Sunday, Sep. 1 with a match at Franklin College with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
