Carmine Gautieri (born 20 July 1970) is an Italian professional football coach and a former player. He was most recently the head coach of Serie C club Triestina.

Playing career

Gautieri amassed a total 227 games with 26 goals in Serie A, the top level of Italian football. An offensive midfielder, he also played for Roma in the late 1990s under the tenure of manager Zdeněk Zeman.

Coaching career

Gautieri started his coaching career in the minor leagues, with Potenza and Olbia. His breakthrough came with third division minnows Virtus Lanciano, which he joined in 2011–12 and immediately led to success in the Lega Pro Prima Divisione promotion playoffs. After being confirmed as Virtus Lanciano head coach for the club's historical first Serie B appearance, he managed his side to league safety despite having been widely predicted as one of the likeliest sides for relegation.

Gautieri left Virtus Lanciano at the end of the 2012–13 season, and was appointed new Bari head coach thereafter.[2] This role was however quite short-lived, as he tended his resignation on 3 August 2013, citing personal reasons.[3] In November 2013 he was appointed new head coach of another Serie B club, Varese, in place of Stefano Sottili[4] only to be dismissed himself later in March 2014 due to poor results.[5]

In July 2014 he was named new head coach of newly relegated Serie B club Livorno.[6] He was removed from his managerial duties on 3 January 2015 and replacing with youth coach Ezio Gelain, with Livorno in sixth place.[7]

He then served as head coach of Serie B club Latina from March to June 2016, succeeding in keeping the Lazio-based club in the second division. On 22 January 2017, Gautieri went back into management as new head coach of another relegation-battling Serie B club, Ternana.[8] After Gautieri lost 6 matches in a row out of 7, he was fired only one and a half months later.[9]

On 14 October 2019, he joined Serie C club Triestina.[10] He was sacked on 2 December 2020 due to a negative start in the 2020–21 Serie C season.[11]
