Corrieri named head men’s soccer coach

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Stephen Corrieri has been named McDaniel College's head men's soccer coach, announced by Director of Athletics Paul Moyer on Wednesday.

"As we conducted this search, Stephen stood out to us as someone with an excellent soccer background," Moyer said. "He has been a part of programs that have had a great deal of success and we are confident he can do the same thing with our team."

Corrieri has spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach at York (Pa.). During his tenure on staff, the Spartans have been consistently ranked among the top teams in Division III. In his first year on the sidelines, the squad advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament.

York won the Capital Athletic Conference in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and advanced to the NCAA tournament in each of Corrieri's six years on staff.

"I'm very excited to take over the program," Corrieri said. "I'm looking forward to working with our guys here and can't wait to get started."

Prior to his time on the Spartan sideline, he served as the head boys' soccer coach at Susquehannock High School in Glen Rock, Pa., from 2002-06. While there, his teams won four consecutive division titles and a pair of York County championships. He took the squad to the 2006 PIAA State quarterfinals and was twice named YAIAA Coach of the Year.

Corrieri played for Carlisle United FC in the English Professional Soccer League from 1994-96. Following his time as a professional player, he also spent five years in semi-professional leagues in England, Scotland and Wales.

He holds a United State Soccer Federation B License.

Corrieri graduated from Wolverhamption University in Birmingham, U.K., in 2000 with a bachelor of arts in Marketing Management in the Sports Industry.

Corrieri will assume his duties immediately.
