ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The Lobo men’s soccer program has added former standout Dominique Romero to its staff. Romero will replace former assistant coach and volunteer coach Chris Cartlidge, effective immediately.
Romero will handle the program’s day-to-day operations, including but not limited travel plans, external website maintenance and will assist in the development of Lobo soccer marketing plans.
A 2009 graduate of the University of New Mexico, Romero has a degree in communications. Since graduating, he has used his degree to pursue freelance work in website development and maintenance, and has also done marketing work for the mentor institute at the University.
“We’re really excited to have Dom back on a daily basis,” head coach Jeremy Fishbein said. “He’s intelligent, creative, and brings a passion for Lobo soccer.
“He is going to make us more effective as a staff.”
Romero was a member of the Lobo men’s soccer team for four years from 2006-09. He sat out his true freshman season as a redshirt, and also took a medical redshirt in 2008. Over the course of his two active seasons, Romero appeared in eight games and has one goal to his credit.
"I’m really excited to be working with one of the countries top programs again," Romero said. "The coaching staff and everyone involved with the program believes in doing things the right way and it really means a lot to be a part of that."
