Brian Wilson enters his sixth season as head coach of the women’s basketball team at Connecticut College.
Under Wilson’s guidance, Connecticut College has recorded the top three NESCAC records and standings finishes in program history and made the program’s only two appearances in the NESCAC Championship Tournament (2012 & 2014)
In the 2013-14 season, the team garnered an overall record of 14-11, marking only the second time in the past 17 seasons that Connecticut College finished with a winning record. The team also finished with a 6-4 NESCAC record which marked the best conference finish in program history as well as the first time a women’s basketball team finished above .500 in conference play. Their 6-4 record also earned the Camels their highest seed in the NESCAC Championship Tournament (5th) and marked their second appearance in the tournament in the past three seasons.
Their previous NESCAC Championship Tournament appearance also came under the guidance of Wilson in the 2011-12 season. The Camels finished 16-7 overall and 5-5 in the NESCAC, marking the program’s first winning season in 15 years and the most conference wins and highest conference finish in program history.
Wilson was tabbed as the ninth Head Women’s Basketball Coach in Connecticut College history in July 2009.
Before coming to Connecticut College, Wilson was an assistant at the College of Holy Cross where he served as recruiting coordinator and associate head coach. During his six-year stint at Holy Cross, the women’s basketball team played in four consecutive Patriot League Championship games and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2005 and 2007.
Wilson graduated from the University of Virginia in 2000 and earned a masters degree from Western Kentucky University in 2006.
