Mike Piranian enters his first season as an assistant coach with the Quakers in 2014 after spending the previous six seasons as an assistant at Carnegie Mellon. While at Carnegie Mellon, Piranian helped guide the Tartans to four NCAA Tournament appearances, the most recent coming in 2013. In their four trips to the national tournament during Piranian’s tenure, the Tartans won five matches. Last season, Piranian and the Tartans reached the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season and finished 2013 ranked No. 18 in the country. That followed a 2012 campaign where Carnegie Mellon won the University Athletic Association (UAA) championship and was ranked as high as No. 4 in the country during the season. The 2009 team won two NCAA postseason games, set five school records and finished the year as co-champions of the UAA with a 16-3-1 (5-1-1) record. The 2010 team once again won all its non-conference matches and finished with an 11-4-1 mark.
