Luke Wildy Joins Men’s Soccer Staff

Jan. 27, 2017

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Coach Brian Wiese has announced the addition of Luke Wildy to the men's soccer staff. Wildy comes to the Hilltop from George Washington University where he was an assistant for three seasons. He will assist in all aspects of the program, focusing on recruiting.

"I would like to thank Coach Wiese and Coach Samol for the opportunity to become a part of the coaching staff here at Georgetown,” said Wildy. “I am beyond excited to begin working with them and the team to continue the tradition of success the program has achieved on and off the field."

In his three seasons at GW, Wildy coached three All-Region award winners, one Atlantic 10 Midfielder of the Year and six All-A-10 honorees. He also had one player earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, and six named to the A-10 All-Academic Team.

"I'm very excited to add Luke to the staff," said Wiese. "He really complements myself and Zach Samol with what he brings from a recruiting point of view as well as helping our attacking players."

In 2015, Wildy helped guide the Colonials' impressive turnaround that included the program's first 10-win season since 2011 and the Atlantic 10 regular-season title. GW was also ranked regionally for the first time in four years, and the coaching staff earned Atlantic 10 Coaching Staff of the Year honors.

Prior to joining the Colonials, Wildy spent the 2013 season at nearby Catholic University, helping guide the Cardinals to a Landmark Conference regular season title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Prior to Catholic, Wildy spent three years as the director of coaching for Excite Soccer Programs, coaching a variety of youth soccer teams throughout the Washington Metro area. This included a one-year stint as an assistant coach with the Potomac Academy U-16 team.

 

 

A midfielder and two-time team captain at GW from 2006-09, Wildy helped lead the Colonials to back-to-back D.C. College Cup titles in 2007 and 2008 and earned All-Tournament Team accolades in 2006 and 2007. He was named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week for the first week of his freshman season after scoring two goals against the Hoyas in his collegiate debut as well as Wiese’s first game as a head coach on the Hilltop.

A native of Crawley, England, Wildy earned his bachelor's degree in exercise science from GW in 2010. He was a four-time member of GW's Athletics Academic Dean's List and served as a team representative to GW's Student-Athlete Advisory Council as a senior.

Wildy currently holds a USSF National B License, and currently works with the Bethesda Soccer Club U-16 Blue. He resides in Washington, D.C.
