Dr. Mike Giuliano

Dr. Mike Giuliano made an immediate impact during his first season on the sidelines leading the Georgia Gwinnett College women's soccer program. The Grizzlies captured the 2017 Association of Independent Institutions title and finished the season ranked No.19 in the NAIA. The 14 wins tied the program's top mark and GGC made its second appearance in the NAIA Opening Round.


Giuliano, who possesses nearly 30 years of successful head coaching experience at the NAIA and NCAA levels, has eight various national coach of the year accolades to his name and was the first coach in National Soccer Coaches Association of America history to earn three consecutive NSCAA/adidas National Coach of the Year awards.


Giuliano brings a wealth of collegiate experience to Georgia Gwinnett, with stints at Wheaton College (Ill.), San Diego State University (Calif.), Westmont College (Calif.), Santa Barbara City College (Calif.), and Trinity Christian College (Ill.).


From 1993-2003, Giuliano developed Westmont into an NAIA women’s soccer powerhouse, producing a 194-42-15 record in 11 seasons while winning four NAIA national titles in five years. Westmont reached nine NAIA national tournaments under Giuliano, including one in each of his final eight seasons. On four occasions, Giuliano was named both the NSCAA/adidas National Coach of the Year and the NAIA Coach of the Year. In his final five seasons at the NAIA level, he led Westmont to a 97-11-7 record and did not lose in his final 59 regulation matches. During the same five-year span, Westmont went 17-0-1 in the NAIA national tournament.


During Giuliano's tenure at Westmont, the school produced three NAIA National Players of the Year, 14 All-Americans, and 16 scholar-athletes. He also helped coach 55 all-Golden State Athletic Conference selections, including three GSAC Players of the Year.


At NCAA Division III Wheaton, Giuliano led the men’s soccer program to a runner-up finish in the national championship in 2014, six total NCAA tournament appearances and seven conference championships in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin.


Prior to Wheaton, Giuliano spent three seasons at NCAA Division I San Diego State.


Giuliano also previously started the women's soccer program at Santa Barbara City College and spent five years coaching the Trinity men's soccer team, winning one district coach-of-the-year honor.


Most recently, Giuliano guided GAC to a Georgia High School Association state championship in 2015 and a state semifinals appearance in 2016.


Giuliano played college soccer at Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga and went on to earn a bachelor's degree in communications from TTU in 1981. He received his master's degree in education in 1987 at Trinity International University (Ill.) and earned a Ph.D. in communications from Northwestern University (Ill.) in 1993.


Giuliano and his wife, Barbara, reside in Suwanee. They have three children, Joshua, Justin, and Linnae.

A former standout NCAA Division I goalkeeper, Kaminski helps coordinate the Grizzly defense and goalkeepers, as well as assists head coach Dr. Mike Giuliano with recruiting, training and day-to-day operations of the program.


In 2017, Kaminski led the GGC defense to nine shutouts and the program's first conference championship. The Grizzlies defeated two nationally ranked opponents, earning triumphs against No. 23 Cumberland (Tenn.) and No. 23 Jamestown (N.D.). The win against Jamestown gave the Grizzlies the Association of Independent Institutions title and berth to the NAIA national tournament. Goalkeeper Sophie Hoare earned first A.I.I. team honors.


She guided the Grizzlies to their fifth-consecutive double-digit-win season at 10-7-2 in 2016. The defensive unit posted four shutouts as the Grizzlies outscored their opponents by a 50-30 margin.


During 2015, Kaminski’s first year at GGC, she helped guide the Grizzly defense to five shutouts en route to a 10-win season.


Prior to arriving at GGC, Kaminski spent the previous four seasons on the staff at NCAA Division III Capital University (Ohio), helping the team to three conference championships and a berth into the national semifinals in 2013. She helped Crusaders goalkeeper Maggie Donnellan collect three consecutive conference goalkeeper of the year awards as well as a pair of all-region honors and an NSCAA All-America designation.


Kaminski boasts a wealth of playing experience, beginning with a record-breaking career in goal for the University of Cincinnati. In her four years with the Bearcats, she logged 6,713 minutes in goal and graduated as the school’s all-time saves leader (407), leading the Big East Conference in the category in both 2006 and 2009.
