The Dynamo have been outscored 11-4 this season in NPSL play but Griest has seen plenty of reasons to remain optimistic.
“I don’t think we’re far off in terms of the makeup of the roster, the pieces are there,” he said. “We’ve shown we can compete, it’s about taking the next step.
“And long term, it’s about getting young players who are hungry and ready to fight.”
Wall – who has been with the organization since 2014 serving as head coach for the Cincinnati Saints from 2014-2015 before assuming the same role when the organization moved to Dayton – is looking forward to remaining involved with the club in a new capacity.
“We want the team to win,” Wall said. “The goal is very simple – bring success to the team, the fans and the Dayton community and I will do whatever I can to make that happen.”
The Dynamo are back in action Friday as they host Kalamazoo FC at 7 p.m. at Welcome Stadium.
