Detroit City FC general manager and head coach Trevor James and his wife, Tiffany, who is the team's assistant general manager, met 31 years ago at a soccer shop where Tiffany worked in Los Angeles.

Detroit City FC captain Stephen Carroll can remember reading an article in 2019 that Trevor James had just been named the club’s manager.

He remembers seeing the resume: Assistant manager with MLS side Portland Timbers and with David Beckham’s LA Galaxy and chief scout with MLS’ Chicago Fire.
