Academy at the Lakes athletic director Tom Haslem has announced the hiring of Roland Moldovan as the Wildcats' new boys varsity soccer coach.
Moldovan is a veteran of the Fusion Futbol Club of Tampa Bay, having guided three teams -- the under-16s in 2008, the under-16s in 2009 and the under-17s in 2010 -- to the Florida Youth Soccer Association State Cup final four. In 2009, Moldovan was the coach of the Fusion's under-15 team that was a finalist at the State Cup.
Moldovan is a former Romanian youth national team player. He replaces Flaubert Augustin, who spent two seasons as the Wildcats boys soccer coach.
This job is Moldovan's first at the high school level.
