Entering his 23rd season, G Guerrieri is the only head coach in the history of Aggie Soccer. Guerrieri has built the Texas A&M program from scratch into one of the elite sides in the nation and he has the Maroon and White planted firmly atop the Southeastern Conference.
The 2014 season was the best in program history--one which saw Guerrieri guide the Aggies to their second consecutive SEC regular-season and tournament championships, the most wins in school annals (22) and a first-ever trip to the NCAA Women's College Cup. For his efforts, Guerrieri won SEC Coach of the Year honors for the second straight year.
In 2013, Guerrieri was recognized as the SEC Coach of the Year after leading the Aggies to a share of the regular-season title and a victory in the SEC Tournament championship match.
Coach G's Aggies have consistently been ranked in the national top 25 while attracting some of the top soccer players in the world to College Station.
One of the winningest coaches in the history of NCAA Division I soccer, Guerrieri has established Texas A&M as a premier program in the nation. Under his tutelage, Texas A&M is one of only five teams to play in every NCAA Tournament the last 20 seasons, and the Aggies have posted 11 consecutive 15-win seasons. Guerrieri has led the Maroon and White to 13 Sweet Sixteens, five Elite Eights and the 2014 NCAA Women's College Cup. Texas A&M ranks seventh in NCAA Division I in wins since 2000 with 262.
Guerrieri ranks sixth all-time among NCAA Division I coaches with 394 wins and a .755 winning percentage. He has guided Texas A&M to nine conference regular-season titles and seven conference tournament crowns. Guerrieri is a four-time conference coach of the year and four-time NSCAA Central Region Coach of the Year
The Maroon and White immediately became one of the premier teams in the SEC with Guerrieri at the helm. The Aggies won the SEC Western Division title in their inaugural season of 2012. A&M captured a share of the SEC regular-season title and claimed the crown at the SEC Tournament in 2013 and repeated as SEC regular-season and tournament champions in 2014.
Guerrieri led the Aggies to 12 Big 12 regular season and tournament titles, including eight trophies in their last eight years in the conference, making his program the most successful in the Big 12.
During his tenure at A&M, Guerrieri has developed Ellis Field into one of the premier college soccer venues in the nation. What began as a facility with just a strip of land on A&M's west campus in 1994 has turned into a stadium second-to-none that hosted its third NCAA Women's College Cup in 2009. The former Aggie Soccer Stadium was upgraded to Ellis Field in the summer of 2011 with new VIP seating and fan amenities. In 2013 a roof and club level was added to the west side stands with a grand plan to add a roof over the east seating in the near future to make the venue one of the best in collegiate soccer.
With Guerrieri at the helm, Texas A&M has established one of the greatest college soccer atmospheres in the country. The Aggies ranked in the top two in home attendance from 2002-13, including the nation's top attendance in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007 (averaging nearly 3,400 per home game in 2006). Furthermore, Guerrieri's teams have won 86 percent of their home matches since the Aggie Soccer Stadium opened in 1994.
Not only have Guerrieri's teams fared well on the field, but all of the student-athletes that have completed their playing careers for him at A&M have either graduated or are on schedule to graduate. In so doing, the team has annually maintained a team GPR above 3.0. Last November, the Aggies earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award (composite team GPA of at least 3.0 for all team members who appear on the official NCAA roster forms) for the third consecutive season.
Guerrieri is a member of both the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and the United States Soccer Coaches Program. In addition, he holds an NSCAA Advanced National Coaching diploma and a USSF "A" coaching license and is the former head coach of the South's amateur team in the U.S. Soccer Festival. He served as the Division I Chair of women's soccer for the NSCAA from 1996-2002, guiding NCAA women's soccer through its greatest period of expansion.
A native of Chicago, Guerrieri was raised in the Dallas area (Richardson), where he played for the powerful Sparta Blue club team that won five NDCCSA Classic League Championships and two U-19 State Cup Championships. Guerrieri also captained the J.J. Pearce High School soccer team as a goalkeeper.
Following high school, he continued his playing career at the University of Tulsa. As team captain of the Golden Hurricane, he was honored as the team MVP in 1982 and was named to the 1981 All-Midwest team. During his career, he set most of the school's team and individual defensive records; the majority of which he still holds.
Following his graduation from Tulsa, Guerrieri served as an assistant coach for the men's programs at Tulsa (1985) and North Texas (1987 and 1990), and as the assistant men's coach and head women's coach at Rollins College (1986). Before coming to College Station, Guerrieri served as head coach for both the men's and women's soccer teams at Hardin-Simmons University and Richland College. His Hardin-Simmons women's team was the 1988 NAIA national runner-up and the 1989 NAIA regional finalist, earning him the Met Life/NSCAA Region Coach of the Year honor. Guerrieri's 1991 and 1992 Richland teams frequented the NJCAA national top-10 rankings in both the men's and women's divisions, and he was twice named Regional Coach of the Year.
While the head coach at Richland, Guerrieri served the soccer community in various capacities, ranging from director of coaching for the Dallas Flame Soccer Club, to goalkeeper coach for the North Texas Soccer Association's Olympic Development Program (ODP) from 1990-92. He was also a key personality in the development of the NDCCSA Classic League Soccer Facility at Richland.
Guerrieri received his B.S. in education from Tulsa in 1985. Guerrieri and his wife, the former Terri Markham (A&M, 1987), have three children - a daughter, Emily (17)--A&M Class of 2019, and two sons, Alan (14) and Conner (10).
