SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Scorpions have relieved Tim Hankinson of his duties as head coach effective immediately, Scorpions President and General Manager Howard Cornfield announced Aug. 27.

Assistant Coach Alen Marcina will be named the Scorpions’ interim head coach for the remainder of the 2013 North American Soccer League (NASL) season. Over the next few months, the Scorpions will conduct a global search for qualified candidates to be their next head coach.

After finishing in third place in the 2013 spring season, the Scorpions are still looking for their first point after four games in the fall season, following four straight losses.

“Tim is a quality coach and person, however, the team has not played to the level our organization and fans expect,” Cornfield said. “Our goal is to compete for the championship and this team is far too talented to be where we are right now. We sincerely thank Tim for his help in getting Scorpions soccer off to a great start, and for his dedication to Soccer for a Cause.”

Initiated in 2010, Soccer for a Cause rallied community support for pro soccer and led to the creation of the Scorpions franchise, which commits all net profits to nonprofit Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first theme park designed with special-needs individuals in mind.

Hankinson joined the Scorpions as their first head coach in the organization’s history. In the club’s first season in the NASL in 2012, Hankinson led the Scorpions to a first-place regular season finish. Nobody scored more goals or allowed fewer goals in the NASL in 2012 than the Scorpions.

“I want to thank Gordon Hartman of Soccer for a Cause for this opportunity to win our first cup,” Hankinson said. “Also, to the fans: Rally behind the team. You have been great!”

Marcina joined the Scorpions as an assistant coach on Hankinson’s staff prior to the 2012 season. He was born in Surrey, British Columbia, and attended Barry University, where he played soccer. Marcina played professionally over an eight-year career that spanned more than five countries. The former striker scored 62 goals over the course of his career. This marks the first head coaching position for the Canadian since he retired from playing in 2010.

“Alen has a great soccer pedigree and recognizes what a great opportunity this is for him,” Cornfield said. “While we will immediately commence a worldwide search for the position of head coach, Alen will be considered for the full-time position when he and the team turn things around.”

Marcina’s first game at the helm took place Aug. 31 against Minnesota United FC at Toyota Field.
