|Title:||Head Women's Basketball Coach|
Brian Wilson, the former associate head coach at the College of the Holy Cross, joined the Connecticut College athletic program in 2009. Wilson, a 2000 graduate of the University of Virginia, spent the previous six seasons with the Crusader program in the Patriot League, handling the critical role of recruiting coordinator for five years.
In 2011-2012, Wilson led the Camels to a 16-7 record and their first NESCAC Playoff berth since the conference moved to its current championship format in 2001. Tara Gabelman '14, a member of Wilson's first recruiting class, garnered second team All-NESCAC honors at the forward position and led the NESCAC in rebounding with 9.4 boards per game.
At Holy Cross, Wilson's teams earned NCAA Tournament berths in 2005 and 2007, reaching the Patriot League Championship game for four consecutive years from 2005-2008. Wilson earned a reputation as an effective and tireless recruiter. In 2007, Wilson's recruiting class was recognized by the Blue Star Basketball Report in its honorable mention category. Wilson was responsible for recruiting Briana McFadden, the 2008 Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year.
In 2007, Wilson was elevated to the position of Associate Head Coach, becoming just the second coach at the college to hold that title in the past 24 years. Prior to Holy Cross, Wilson spent two years in the Bluegrass State as a graduate assistant at Western Kentucky University. In 2003, the Hilltoppers captured the Sun Belt Conference Crown, securing a berth in the NCAA Championship. Wilson received his Master of Arts in History at WKU in 2006.
Wilson has spent the bulk of his coaching career in the Division I ranks but landed his first coaching job in the NESCAC at Williams College as an intern with the men's and women's basketball programs.
