Gurrieri coached at Manalapan for more than a decade, where he never had a losing season. He won a sectional title in 2014.
Gurrieri replaces former coach Anthony Grandinetti.
Grandinetti, along with two assistant coaches and the Wall High School athletic director were all put on leave last year in the wake of the school’s football hazing scandal.
