While coaching at USAO, Vizarelis has helped develop players to become NAIA All-Americans and serves as recruiting coordinator and goalkeeper coach for the programs.

His goalkeeping ability and defensive philosophy is almost unprecedented. Hampton has said Vizarelis is one of the best goalkeepers he’s seen and someone who has made a difference coaching USAO goalies.

His final season, he allowed 27 goals on 168 shots against him while starting in nearly every game.

For his career (1998-2001) Vizarelis notched 21 shutouts, which is also a school record. He posted a 1.41 career goals against average.

In addition to his coaching position at USAO, he is currently the director of goalkeeping for the Oklahoma Football Club, the largest club in the state.

In February 2007, Vizarelis was inducted into the USAO Athletic Hall of Fame.
