Rolando Maran (born 14 July 1963) is an Italian football manager and former defender. He was last in charge of Catania in Serie A.



Maran has played for Benacense Riva, Chievo, Valdagno, Carrarese and Fano.[1]


Serie B[edit]

Maran has been the head coach of Cittadella, Brescia, Bari, Triestina, Vicenza and Varese in Serie B.

Serie A[edit]

Since 11 June 2012 he is the new head coach of Catania in Serie A. Since taking over he led Catania to a record-breaking season where they accrued 56 points from 38 Serie A matches. The season also saw Catania take a record amount of home wins in one season, its record number of victories overall in a single top flight campaign, as well as its record points total in Serie A for the fifth consecutive season.

After being confirmed as head coach, Maran however failed to repeat his impressive results in the new season, and was ultimately dismissed on 20 October 2013 after a 1–2 loss to Cagliari Calcio that left Catania into the relegation zone.[2]
