Assistant Coach

Alma Mater:
Marquette '13

The 2018 season marks the first for Bryan Ciesiulka as an assistant coach on Louis Bennett's staff. Ceisiulka was a standout player at Marquette from 2010-13, earning numerous accolades on and off the pitch.

He was one of the most decorated men’s soccer student-athletes to step foot at Marquette University and the second MU player ever drafted in the MLS SuperDraft following his fourth-round selection by the Chicago Fire in 2014.

Ciesiulka completed his second coaching season at the high school level in 2018, leading the Hinsdale Central girls’ soccer team to a six-win improvement from the previous year and a run to the regional final. He received his coaching start in 2017, taking the reigns of the Proviso East High School boys’ team in 2017.

During his time as a student-athlete, Ciesiulka was a two-time All-BIG EAST performer and claimed the league’s co-midfielder of the year award in 2013. That same season, he was a Senior CLASS Award finalist and first team All-American, in addition to being selected as the BIG EAST Scholar Athlete Sport Excellence award winner. He was a CoSIDA Academic All-American Second Team honoree in 2012 and an NSCAA (now United Soccer Coaches) Scholar All-American Third Team pick in 2013.

He led Marquette to the 2013 BIG EAST tournament title and a second-straight appearance in the NCAA tournament where the Golden Eagles marched all the way to the Sweet 16.

After being drafted by the Chicago Fire, he was released prior to the start of the 2014 season and later signed with Swedish club Gimo IF FK. He returned stateside for the 2015 season, joining USL club Saint Louis FC before entering the business world and earning his first head coaching position at Proviso East High School.

A native of Naperville, Illinois, Ciesiulka attended Neuqua Valley High School where he was named an NSCAA/Adidas All-American and the Gatorade Illinois Boys Soccer Player of the Year as a senior in 2009.
