From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

José Mario Carrillo Zamudio (born January 1, 1956 in Mexico City) is a Mexican football coach, currently serving as an assistant coach to Javier Aguirre with Mexico national football team.

Carrillo has also coached Puebla F.C., Club América, and Cruz Azul.

As a player, Carrillo was league runner-up with Tigres UANL in 1978. He started coaching on October 1, 1999, with Puebla F.C.. Later on, he worked as an assistant coach for UNAM Pumas, under head coach Hugo Sánchez, becoming champions for two tournaments in a row. Mario is known for his strong defensive, yet fast offensive playing scheme, and always requesting his players to never give up. He always spends long hours study next match rivals, hence gaining the nickname of "Capello", in reference to Italian head coach Fabio Capello's skills.

In 2005, lead Club América to win the Clausura championship, being his biggest accomplishment so far.

After Tigres suffered months of scandal over the hiring of José Luis Trejo, and a poor record of eight games in a row without victory, Carrillo arrived to the team to try and correct the path. He was unsuccessful and now continues to study coaching skills to come back soon.
