Giuseppe Iachini (born 7 May 1964 in Ascoli Piceno) is an Italian football coach and former player.

Playing career

Iachini started his playing career at Ascoli, and made his Serie A and professional debut in 1981–1982, at the age of 17. He played for Ascoli until 1987, when he signed for Verona.

In 1989, Iachini moved to Fiorentina and played five seasons with the viola, four of them in Serie A. From 1994 to 1996 he played for Palermo of Serie B. After a single Serie B season with Ravenna, in 1997 Iachini transferred to Venezia, where he played for three years, two of them in Serie A. He retired in 2001, after a SINGLE Serie C1 season with Alessandria.

Managing career

Iachini started his coaching career in October 2001, when he was called to coach Venezia of Serie A, despite not being in possession of a coaching license yet. Assisted by "official" head coach Alfredo Magni, Iachini left his position as assistant coach at Piacenza in order to join Venezia, in spite of the Italian football regulation laws, and was successively disqualified for six months because of that. In the end, Venezia were relegated to Serie B.

In 2002–2003, Iachini coached Cesena of Serie C1, leading his team to a spot in the promotion playoffs. In 2003–2004, Iachini moved at Vicenza, in Serie B, where he managed a team composed mostly by youngsters and led them to a mid-table place. He coached Piacenza, another Serie B club, from 2004–05 to 2006–07 with good results, including a notable fourth place, only behind Juventus, Napoli and Genoa, in his latest season with the biancorossi. He was announced on June 2007 as new ChievoVerona boss for their 2007–08 Serie B campaign, and successfully led the gialloblu to become league champions and promptly mark their return in the top flight.

On November 4, 2008, following an unimpressive start in the 2008–09 Serie A campaign, and two days after a 3–0 loss to Palermo, Iachini was dismissed from his coaching post by the club management.[1]

On October 4, 2009 he was appointed new head coach of Serie B outfit Brescia, replacing Alberto Cavasin.[2]
