In his first season at Bowdoin, Wiercinski led the Polar Bears to an 8-4-4 mark. Bowdoin advanced to the NESCAC semifinals after defeating Tufts in penalty kicks to secure a quarterfinal victory. Wiercinski led the Polar Bears to their first-ever NESCAC Championship in his second season at the helm and collected an NCAA First Round Tournament win in 2014. The Polar Bears became back-to-back NESCAC Champions with another tournament run in 2015.


A native of Brunswick and graduate of Brunswick High School, Wiercinski will return to Maine after seven years as head coach at the University of Chicago. His resume also includes assistant coaching jobs at Brown and Bowdoin. He is a 1999 graduate of Middlebury.


Wiercinski wrapped up his seventh season as head men's soccer coach at University of Chicago in 2012. The Maroons posted an 8-4-5 overall record in 2012, bringing Wiercinski's career record to 58-47-20. In 2009, Wiercinski guided the Maroons to the University Athletic Association championship and an automatic berth in the NCAA Division III tournament.


Prior to his arrival at Chicago, Wiercinski spent five years as an assistant coach at Brown University from 2001-05. During that time, Brown compiled a 41-31-13 overall record, collected three Ivy League championships, and earned two NCAA Division I postseason berths.


Wiercinski broke into coaching in 2000 with Bowdoin, where he helped former head coach Brian Ainscough lead the Polar Bears to a 14-2-2 record. A as a student at Middlebury College, Wiercinski was a four-year letter winner and two-time All-New England Small College Athletic Conference goalkeeper for the Panthers. He helped lead Middlebury to a 48-10-3 overall record and four NCAA Division III tournament appearances from 1995-98.


In Wiercinski's 15 years on the sidelines and on the field, his teams have compiled a record of 144-75-35 with nine NCAA tournament appearances.
