Last year, the Hoyas went into the NCAA Tournament as the eighth overall seed and made it to the quarterfinals before failing to advance in penalty kicks against the University of Virginia, the eventual national champions. The team also boasted a number of individual successes.
Sophomore Joshua Yaro was named a First Team All-American and the BIG EAST Defender of the Year. Freshman Arun Basuljevic was the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year and junior Brandon Allen was also named an All-American. The Hoyas had goalkeeper Tomas Gomez drafted 60th overall in the Major League Soccer Draft and midfielder Tyler Rudy picked up by the New England Revolution as a Discovery Player.
This continued the momentum from the season prior, where the Hoyas returned to the NCAA Tournament as the sixth overall seed eventually falling in the Sweet 16. Individually, the Hoyas had two All-Americans in Steve Neumann and Allen. Neumann went on to be the No. 4 overall draft pick in the MLS SuperDraft and classmate Joey Dillon followed in the third round. In the BIG EAST, the team garnered five All-BIG EAST honors and had the Offensive Player, Midfielder and Goalkeeper of the Year as well as the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year, the latter marking the second time in Wiese's career.
When Wiese and company broke onto the national stage was 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.
Individual accolades followed as a record four players were drafted by teams in the MLS including three Hoyas earning a spot in the MLS SuperDraft. Neumann was a MAC Hermann Trophy Semifinalist and earned College Cup Most Outstanding Offensive Player, while Allen was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year as well as the national rookie of the year by a number of outlets. GU had two All-Americans as well as six All-BIG EAST honorees. Georgetown boasted its well-rounded student-athletes with Keon Parsa earning the Elite89 Award, given to the student-athlete at the College Cup with the highest GPA.
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 seven All-Americans, 20 regional All-Americans, seven BIG EAST Players of the Year and 26 All-BIG EAST honorees as well as the College Cup Most Outstanding Offensive Player. On the academic side, he has had one Academic All-American, one Academic All-Region honoree, two BIG EAST Scholar-Athletes and one Elite89 Award winner.
The team has seen unprecedented success under Wiese with four NCAA Tournament berths in five years. The squad has also won three BIG EAST Regular Season Championships, been ranked among the top 25 in seven seasons and made a trip to the BIG EAST Tournament championship game.
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 (14), Ted (12) and Maya (10).
