About Brian 

Coach Wiese is considered to be one of the top coaches in the region and has for the last thirteen years served as the Men's Soccer Head Coach at Georgetown University. 

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 United Soccer Coaches Division I Coach of the Year. With Wiese the Hoyas have made six NCAA Tournament berths in an eight-year span. The squad has also won four Big East regular season championships, two BIG EAST Championships and been ranked among the top 25 in eight seasons including stints at No. 1 in the nation.

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.

He was named to'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).
