Laurentian Voyageur Athletics is pleased to announce that former women’s soccer coach, Rob Gallo has agreed to stay involved with the Voyageurs in an advisory role as we transition into the next era of women’s soccer at Laurentian. Gallo will give the program a familiar, steady presence and will allow for a seamless transition once someone is hired to lead the program into the future.
For Voyageurs Athletic Director, Peter Hellstrom, having Gallo agree to take on this position only benefits the women’s soccer program. “With Rob taking on this role, it eases the pressure greatly. We are now in a position where we have a leader for the program who will tackle recruiting and organize the season while we navigate through the budget process.”
For Gallo, ensuring the program that he helped build from the ground up is in a position to grow and succeed is imperative. “It is important to create the proper environment for our new head coach to succeed. Taking on the advisory role will allow a smoother transition for the new coach and the entire women’s soccer program.”
