He then played in the United Soccer League (USL) when he transferred to the Puerto Rico Islanders later in 2008. In 2009, Yomby signed on with the USL Second Division Richmond Kickers and has been with the club since. The defender has been a six-time All-League First Team defender. Contributed to over 80 shutouts in the nine seasons he has played with the team.
"We welcome Yomby back to his alma mater," Dawson said. "He was a big part of some of our most successful men’s soccer teams and has went on to have a stellar professional career. He has a lot of experience to lean on as he begins his coaching career and our players will benefit first hand from his wealth of knowledge. He is excited to return to his Monarch soccer family and we are fortunate to have him as a part of our coaching staff."
Yomby has spent the last five seasons as a volunteer assistant coach at VCU.
