Darius Wei joined the Duke coaching staff in July, 2012. Heis a coaching veteran of over 10 years with stints at the University of Rochester (2002-08), the Northwest Fencing Center (2008-2011) and the Vega Fencing Academy (2011-12).

In his first season, Wei helped guide the Blue Devils to a 12th-place finish at the 2013 NCAA Championships, while the men's and women's teams earned top-10 rankings in the USFCA rankings. As the staff's foil specialist, Wei mentored a women's foil unit that yielded four fencers with at least 20 wins and a men's squad that produced five double-digit winners.

Previously Wei coached at the Northwest Fencing Center in Portland, Ore., working with the senior women’s foil team that won back-to-back national championships in 2008 and 2009 and the senior men’s foil team which won a national championship in 2010 and a bronze medal in 2011. Athletes who have trained with Darius have earned success at a high level, including North American Cup finals, National Championships and NCAA Championship berths.
