Coach Ouimet helped guide the Colonials' impressive turnaround in 2015 that included the program's first 10-win season since 2011 and the Atlantic 10 regular-season title. GW was also ranked regionally for the first time in four years.
During his tenure at Duquesne, Ouimet led the Dukes to two Atlantic 10 Championship berths. He coached 17 All-Conference players, 10 regional All-Americans and four Academic All-Americans at Duquesne, including the 2011 Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year and a 2012 MAC Hermann Trophy candidate, as well as the first Dukes ever to be drafted by a Major League Soccer franchise, with two players chosen by the Vancouver Whitecaps in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. His teams were ranked regionally in five of his seven seasons, and the Dukes earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award for posting a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average six times, ranking 17th among all Division I programs with a 3.31 GPA in the fall of 2012.
Ouimet returns to Foggy Bottom after spending seven seasons on former head coach George Lidster's staff from 1999-2006, including his final year as associate head coach. Ouimet helped guide the Colonials to a pair of Atlantic 10 championships and NCAA Tournament berths in 2002 and 2004. During his tenure at GW, where he also served as recruiting coordinator, the Colonials reached the A-10 tournament four times.
A standout striker at the University of Maine from 1992-96, Ouimet was the 1992 North Atlantic Conference Rookie of the Year and a three-time regional All-American. He remains the Black Bears' all-time leader in goals (36) and points scored (86). As a player in the professional ranks, Ouimet competed for the Worcester Wildfire of the A-League and the Cape Cod Crusaders of the USISL from 1997-99, leading both teams in scoring.
Ouimet began his coaching career in 1997 as an assistant with the boys' varsity soccer team at W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, Va., where he coached current U.S. National Team member Clarence Goodson. In addition, he served as head coach of Sterling United in Virginia, guiding his team to the USYSA State Cup semifinals and the Potomac Memorial Tournament title.
Ouimet holds a National and Advanced National coaching license from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
