The 2011 season marked the sixth campaign on the Hilltop for Head Coach Brian Wiese. Georgetown went 10-5-4, not losing for 10-consecutive games. The Hoyas tied No. 1 Connecticut in Storrs as well as No. 19 Penn State on their home turf.
In 2010, Wiese led the Blue & Gray to one of the best seasons in program history. Georgetown won the BIG EAST Blue Division Regular Season Championship for the first time since 1997 and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the second round of play before not advancing over the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Wiese and his staff were also named the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year.
In 2009, the Hoyas laid the groundwork finishing fourth in the BIG EAST's Blue Division with an overall record of 9-8-2 and earning a berth in the BIG EAST Tournament. Georgetown also defeated its first ranked opponent under Wiese, downing No. 19 UCLA 2-0.
Wiese continued to build a Hoya team that qualified for its fourth-consecutive BIG EAST Tournament after a five-year drought. Wiese's continued success on the field can be attributed to his proved recruiting - bringing in players ranked among the top 100 in the nation three years in a row.
Following his first season in 2006, Wiese and his staff brought in one of the biggest recruiting classes in school history as the Hoyas welcomed 11 newcomers to the program.
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.
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. Wiese has worked with 11 All-Americans and eight Academic All-America selections during his career as well as four players who were candidates for the Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy, recognizing the Division I National Player of the Year.
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 title. 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 of science 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 (11), Ted (9) and Maya (7).
