2018 ODP Staff Boys


U12 Boys
Pete Caringi, Jr.
Head Coach - UMBC Staff
USSF "A" License 

Caringi has won at every level, both as a player and as a coach. In his early years at UMBC, he led the Retrievers to a pair of regular-season league titles (1991, 1993), but building a true championship team eluded him. However, after carefully reconstructing his program over time, the Retriever mentor achieved that measure of success in 1999.

Like a master chef, Caringi blended experienced local talent with a couple of international standouts, and finished by adding a few impactful newcomers. The result was one of the finest products in UMBC history. The 1999 Retrievers won the Northeast Conference title, gave No. 1 Duke all it could handle in the NCAA Tournament, finished the year with the nation’s best winning percentage and earned national rankings in every major soccer poll.    

In 34 years as a collegiate coach, Coach Caringi has never suffered back-to-back sub-.500 seasons.He coached the Knights to the National Junior College championship game in 1984 and 1989 and was named NJCAA National Coach of the Year and Region XX Coach of the Year in both seasons.

In 1994, he was inducted into the National Junior College Athletic Hall of Fame, and in May 1998, he was inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame. In 2009, he was a member of the second class inducted into the University of Baltimore Athletic Hall of Fame.

Caringi was a two-time All-American at the University of Baltimore (1976, 1977) and is the school’s all-time leading goal-scorer with 70 goals. Moreover, the Retriever mentor is 21st on the NCAA Division II all-time goals list and is 39th in scoring with 159 points. He captained the 1975 NCAA Division II?national championship team and played for the Washington Diplomats of the North American Soccer League in 1978.

He and his wife, Susan, have two children, Christina, a spring 2011 UMBC graduate, and Pete III, who became UMBC's first-ever NSCAA Division First Team All-American after his senior campaign of 2013. Petey will join his father on the sidelines full-time in 2015, serving as an assistant coach.

Coach Caringi holds a USSF “A” license and is a staff coach with the ODP under-23 squad.
