Renzo Ulivieri (born 2 February 1941 in San Miniato, Pisa) is an Italian football (soccer) manager.

Career

After a very short playing career as midfielder for the Fiorentina youth team and Serie C team Cuoiopelli, Ulivieri became coach for Cuoiopelli in 1966, after the team were relegated to Serie D. He then coached several other amateur teams in Tuscany, such as San Miniato, Fucecchio, and the Prato youth squad.

In 1972, he joined Serie C side Empoli, where he served as head coach for three seasons. He then spent two years as Fiorentina youth coach before Ulivieri signing for Ternana of Serie B in 1978. He made his Serie A debut in 1980 for Perugia. Since then, Ulivieri served as head coach for numerous clubs all around the country. His best results were a double consecutive promotion from Serie C1 to Serie A with Bologna, a Torneo di Viareggio with Fiorentina in 1978, and a promotion to Serie A with Sampdoria in 1981–82. He returned to coach Bologna in 2005, but was fired soon after following a series of poor results. He was however recalled on March 2006, after his replacement Andrea Mandorlini did not manage to improve results. Ulivieri coached Bologna also in 2006–2007, but was fired on 14 April 2007 after a 3-0 away loss to Genoa, and following weeks of disputes with club chairman Alfredo Cazzola.

On November 2007 he was appointed at the helm of relegation-battling Serie A side Reggina to replace Massimo Ficcadenti.[1] On 3 March 2008, Ulivieri was sacked by Reggina after a string of results where they picked up only four points from seven league games.[2]

Ulivieri is among the most experienced head coaches in Italy, and is also head of the Italian Head Coaches' Association. He is well known for his left-wing political stance (he is a former Democrats of the Left and Italian Communist Party, member), very uncommon in the Italian football world.
