Brian Giorgis

Entering his 18th season as head coach of the Marist women's basketball team, Giorgis is the program's all-time leader in wins. His career record stands at 341-115 with a winning percentage of .748. Giorgis has led the Red Foxes to 10 MAAC Championship Titles, 11 MAAC Regular Season Titles, 10 NCAA Tournament appearances, and an appearance in the WNIT.

In the 2015-16 season, Marist finished with an equal record of 16-16, and a strong MAAC showing of 14-6. The Red Foxes found themselves in third in the MAAC at the end of the season and made it to the semifinals of the tournament.

Alongside this award, Jarosz was also named a member of the first team All-MAAC with teammate Sydney Coffey. The Red Foxes showed their success in the classroom as well with four members being names to the MAAC All-Academic team.

In Brian Giorgis’ thirteenth season as the head coach of the Marist women’s basketball team he led the group to great success on and off the court. The team made their 12th straight MAAC Championship game, 11th postseason appearance, had four Red Foxes honored with All-MAAC selections, five players named to the MAAC Women’s Basketball All-Academic Team, three representatives on the MAAC All-Tournament team, and achieved their 12th straight 20+ win season.

Marist captured its 10th MAAC Championship in the 2013-14 season under Giorgis. The Red Foxes exceeded 100 points on two separate occasions this season: Dec. 18, 2013 with a 103-66 win over Northeastern and on Feb. 14, 2014 with a 100-81 win over Quinnipiac. This was the first time Marist scored 100 points since 2002, the first time Giorigis has led a team to 100 points in his career, and the first time Marist has scored 100 points against a MAAC opponent. Giorgis posted his 11th consecutive 20+ win season and eighth straight 25+ win season. Giorgis also captured his 300th career win this year with a 82-53 rout of Monmouth on Feb. 28, 2014. Marist defeated #20/19 Oklahoma on Dec. 21, 2013 76-69. This is the second time Giorgis defeated a ranked opponent in his career, the first time coming in 2010 over #21 Nebraska.

Associate Head Coach
Erin Doughty

Doughty is entering her 15th season with the team in the 2019-20 season, and her second as the Associate Head Coach. She continues to serve as the program's recruiting coordinator as well as making team travel arrangements and coordinates the team's community service projects. After working primarily with the Red Foxes' post players, Doughty began working alongside assistant coach Alisa Kresge with the team's guards in the 2011-12 season.
Under Doughty's guidance, the Red Foxes led the MAAC in blocked shots (4.1 per game) and defensive rebounds (27.5 per game) in 2010-11. The previous two seasons, Marist ranked second in those two categories. Additionally, Marist led the conference in rebounding margin last season at +1.9.

Doughty was the active member on the Marist coaching staff that helped bring the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation and the women's basketball program together. In April 2010, the team adopted Nina Triplo from Stone Ridge, N.Y., welcoming her to the Red Fox family. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for those affected by pediatric brain tumors.

From 2002-05, Doughty was a walk-on guard who appeared in 12 games, made two MAAC All-Academic teams and was one of the Red Foxes' most popular players. An accurate long-distance shooter, Doughty hit the first two shots she attempted in her collegiate career, both of which were three-pointers. During her senior season, she joined the coaching staff as an assistant, and in her first season with the squad, Marist finished with 23 victories, the highest win total in school history at the time.

Doughty attended Holy Cross High School in Connecticut, where she played four years of varsity volleyball and basketball. In basketball, Doughty became the school's all-time leader in three-pointers made and helped the squad earn a berth in the state championship game in 2002.

Doughty earned her bachelor's degree from Marist in 2006 and her master's in 2008 in Psychology.google
