Now in his 11th season on the Hilltop, Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese has seen the most success in the program’s history. Wiese and the Hoyas have placed the program on the national stage and Georgetown is regarded as one of the top contenders in the country year after year.

Last year, the Hoyas had an impressive season with a mark of 16-2-3 overall and 9-0-0 in BIG EAST Conference play, winning both the BIG EAST Conference regular season and championship titles. The tournament championship was the first in program history. Georgetown went on a program record 18-game unbeaten streak including a 14-game win streak. With the Blue & Gray failing to advance in penalty kicks in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16, the unbeaten streak continues into 2016.

Individually, Brandon Allen became GU’s first-ever MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist. He joined Joshua Yaro as an All-American and five Hoyas were regional All-Americans. In the BIG EAST, JT Marcinkowski was named the Freshman of the Year and Yaro earned Defender of the Year honors. Additionally, eight Hoyas were selected All-BIG EAST and the coaches won Staff of the Year honors for the third time in Wiese’s tenure.

Following the season, six players moved on to Major League Soccer (MLS) with Yaro being selected as the second overall pick and Keegan Rosenberry earning the third overall selection. Cole Seiler was selected in the first round, 16th overall, and Josh Turnley was drafted 42nd overall. Allen and Alex Muyl both signed homegrown contracts for the first time in program history.

Wiese and company broke onto the national stage in 2012, which will be remembered as the most successful in program history. The Hoyas went 19-4-3 with a mark of 6-2-0 in the BIG EAST Conference. The squad was the third overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and the 19 wins were the most in program history. The Hoyas were the BIG EAST Blue Division Champions, the BIG EAST Championship runners-up and advanced to the national championship game in penalty kicks in a thrilling game against the University of Maryland after Georgetown began the season unranked. With all of the success, the coaching staff was not forgotten as Wiese was named the NSCAA/Field Turf Division I Coach of the Year and Associate Head Coach Zach Samol earned NSCAA Northeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year.

In his tenure at Georgetown, Wiese has coached 15 players that have signed with an MLS squad, one Hermann Trophy finalist, three Hermann Trophy semifinalists, nine All-Americans, 25 regional All-Americans, nine BIG EAST Players of the Year and 34 All-BIG EAST honorees as well as the College Cup Most Outstanding Offensive Player. On the academic side, he has had two Academic All-Americans, one Academic All-Region honoree, two BIG EAST Scholar-Athletes and one Elite89 Award winner.

The team has seen unprecedented success under Wiese with five NCAA Tournament berths in six years. The squad has also won four BIG EAST Regular Season Championships, one BIG EAST Tournament Championship and been ranked among the top 25 in eight seasons including stints at No. 1 in the nation. Since 2012, Georgetown has ended each season among the top 10 in the country.

Wiese earned his first collegiate head coaching job at Georgetown in March 2006 after a successful stint as the associate head coach at the University of Notre Dame. Following his first season, Wiese and his staff brought in one of the biggest recruiting classes in school history as the Hoyas welcomed 11 newcomers to the program.

From 1996-2005, Wiese worked under nationally-recognized coach Bobby Clark for five seasons at Stanford University and then for five more at Notre Dame. In those 10 seasons, the teams posted a combined record of 136-48-25, advanced to nine-straight NCAA Tournaments and made one trip to the championship match. At UND and Stanford, Wiese worked with 11 All-Americans and eight Academic All-America selections as well as four players who were candidates for the MAC Hermann Trophy.

Wiese joined Notre Dame as an assistant in 2001 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2005. During his time with the Irish, he helped guide the team to five NCAA Tournament appearances (reaching the Sweet 16 in 2003 and 2005), to the 2003 BIG EAST Tournament title and the 2004 BIG EAST Regular Season Championship. He was named to CollegeSoccerNews.com’s Top Assistant Coaches List in 2001 and was part of the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year on two occasions (2001 and 2003).

Prior to his stint at Notre Dame, Wiese spent five years (1996-2001) as an assistant coach at Stanford University. The Cardinal posted a 71-21-12 record during that time and made four NCAA Tournament appearances. The team posted a 10-4-4 record in 1996, its first winning season in four years, was ranked second in the country in 1997 when they went 13-5-2 and finished the 1998 season No. 2 in the country after reaching the NCAA title game and finishing 18-5-2. In 2000, Stanford was ranked No. 1 in the country during the season, finished 18-3-1 overall and advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. That year, the Cardinal posted a 0.44 goals-against average, the best in the country, and were second in the country with 68 goals scored. During his time at Stanford, Wiese earned a master’s degree in product design (mechanical engineering) in 1998.

A 1995 graduate of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Wiese earned a Bachelor of Arts in mechanical engineering. A goalkeeper, he was a three-time All-Ivy League selection, two-time Academic All-Ivy League honoree, was named the team’s most valuable player in 1993 and captained the team as a senior.

Wiese played professionally briefly for the Bulawayo Highlanders in Zimbabwe. He began his coaching career in 1995, serving as the head coach of the Upper Valley Lightning boys U-15 club team in New Hampshire. Following that, he moved out west, taking over as the head coach of the Del Mar (San Diego) Tsunami girls U-17 club team from 1995-96.

Wiese and his wife Becky have three children Morgan (15), Ted (13) and Maya (11).
