ELON — Elon men’s soccer coach Marc Reeves has announced the promotion of assistant coach Maciej Sliwinski and the addition of Nick Sakiewicz to his staff with the Phoenix.
Sliwinski has been elevated to the role of associate head coach. He joined Elon last year, reuniting with Reeves, who he worked under at Radford for five seasons.
Prior to coming on board at Elon for Reeves’ first season, Sliwinski spent two years as an assistant coach at Fairfield, where he also held the position of associate head coach.
Sakiewicz becomes an Elon assistant coach after a one-season stop at Guilford College, where he served as the top assistant. He assisted Johnson & Wales for a year before making the move to Guilford.
Reeves’ Elon staff changes were an effect of Brad Franks’ departure to became an Appalachian State assistant coach and Matt Brown’s decision to take the coaching reins of the Shaw men’s and women’s teams.
Franks, a former Elon standout and two-time all-league selection in the Southern Conference, was an Elon assistant coach for four seasons from 2014-17. With Appalachian State, Franks will work under Jason O’Keefe, formerly an assistant at Wake Forest, Elon and North Carolina.
Brown helped with the development of Elon’s goalkeepers last season.
