MATTHEWS – Stumptown AC will begin a national search for the next head coach of its professional team as previous sporting director and head coach Rod Underwood moves on from the organization.

Underwood was announced this afternoon as the next head coach for NISA regional rival Chattanooga FC.

Stumptown AC was fortunate to work with coach Underwood for the 2021 NISA Spring and Fall seasons, accomplishing a number of our goals both on the field and in the community,” Club President Alex Kantor said. “We wish coach Underwood the best of luck in his future endeavors, unless it’s the games against us of course. We are grateful for the time he spent here in Matthews.”

The club will immediately begin the search for the next head coach of the team.

Our goal to build a first-class community-based club in the southern suburbs of the Charlotte-metro area remain unchanged,” Kantor said. “We will look to align those goals off the field with a highly competitive side on the pitch, and that starts at the top.”
