Early life and education

Born in Pueblo, Colorado, Giarratano attended Pueblo South High School and graduated in 1980. He then attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, earning a degree in physical education in 1985. He later added a master's degree from Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado.

Coaching career

In 1989, he began his coaching career at Trinidad State, a junior college in Trinidad, Colorado. In six seasons with the Trojans, Giarratano led teams to five NJCAA World Series. He then spent two seasons at Yavapai College in Prescott, Arizona. He sent 25 of his players to professional contracts before becoming an assistant at Arizona State in 1997. Giarratano served as hitting instructor, offensive coordinator, and third base coach and helped lead the team to the 1998 College World Series final.

Giarratano moved to San Francisco to become head coach in 1999. In his time with the Dons, he has led teams to three NCAA Regionals, their only appearances in the Tournament in program history. The Dons have also claimed a pair of West Coast Conference Championships, and earned Giarratano WCC Coach of the Year honors three times. Giarratano is the program's all-time leader in wins.
