Assistant Football Coach
Brian Bliese became the head coach of the Buccaneer Men’s and Women’s Track & Field squad at the beginning of the 2000 season. He is also the coordinator of the Buccaneer Cross Country program.
Bliese came to Beloit College from Midwest Conference rival Carroll College, where he coached a combination of track, cross country and football teams during his 16-year tenure there. He served as head track coach for both the men and women, was the cross country coach in 1999 and the cross country coordinator before that, and was the offensive coordinator of the Pioneer football team through the 1998 season. Before Carroll, he coached track and football at Carthage College and coached football, women’s volleyball, basketball and softball at his alma mater, Milton College. He also was the women’s athletic director at Milton.
Bliese graduated from Milton College in 1976 after a successful career as a quarterback. During his senior season, Bliese led Milton to an undefeated and untied season, the only collegiate school in the nation to accomplish that feat in 1975.
Over the past 20 years, Bliese has coached over 30 All-Americans, four National Champions and eight team Conference Champions.
