Carmen Maciariello completed his second season as an assistant coach for the George Washington men's basketball team in 2015-16.
This past season, GW won a school-record 28 games while capturing its first ever postseason title by winning the NIT. In Maciariello's two seasons at GW, the Colonials have won a total of 50 games and made back-to-back postseason appearances.
When arriving at GW, Maciariello brought six years of experience as an assistant coach and more than a decade of involvement in NCAA Division I basketball, most recently as an assistant on Joe Jones' coaching staff at Boston University from 2011-14. During his six seasons as an assistant at both BU and Fairfield, teams have posted combined records of 122-74 overall and 75-29 in conference play.
BU went 57-40 overall, 38-12 in league play and made a pair of postseason appearances during his three seasons, highlighted by a 24-11 overall record, Patriot League regular-season title with a 15-3 league mark and trip to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in 2013-14. While at BU, he was instrumental in the development of nine all-conference and all-rookie team selections, including 2012 America East Player of the Year Darryl Partin.
Prior to his tenure at BU, Maciariello spent three seasons as an assistant on Ed Cooley's staff at Fairfield University. He helped the Stags to a 65-34 mark, 37-17 record in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and two postseason appearances, including a school-record 25 wins, MAAC regular-season championship with a 15-3 conference mark and advancement to the NIT second round in 2010-11.
He joined Cooley as an Assistant Coach and Director of Basketball Operations at Providence College in the spring and summer of 2011 before accepting the assistant role at BU. He was also the Director of Basketball Operations at his alma mater, Siena College, under Fran McCaffery during the 2005-06 season.
Maciariello concluded his four-year collegiate playing career at Siena in 2000-01, helping the Saints post a 20-win season and share of the MAAC regular-season title. He graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in marketing/management from Siena that spring.
Before transferring to Siena, he spent three seasons at the University of New Hampshire where he served as team captain as a junior in 1998-99 and was the Wildcats' Defensive Player of the Year in 1998.
Following his collegiate career, Maciariello received Italian citizenship and played four professional seasons in Italy before returning to the U.S. to pursue teaching and coaching.
From 2006-07, Maciariello worked as a one-on-one aide for children with special needs in the North Colonie School District near his hometown of Clifton Park, N.Y. He then spent two years as vice president and head coach of the Albany City Rocks, a Nike-sponsored AAU travel team. With the City Rocks, Maciariello coached a number of top Division I players, including Jimmer Fredette (Chicago Bulls), Mark Lyons (Arizona), and Talor Battle (Penn State).
The Albany Times Union's scholastic Player of the Year at Shenendehowa High School in 1996, Coach Maciariello was inducted into the New York Capital District Basketball Hall of Fame in 2012.
