Andrew Wilson is in his sixth season serving as an assistant coach under legendary head coach Bobby Cremins.
He has been a member of a cohesive and experienced unit Cremins first assembled upon his appointment at Charleston in 2006. Together, the CofC coaching staff has led the Cougars to three Southern Conference championship game appearances, 113 victories, four 20-win seasons, a SoCon regular-season championship title, the program's first NBA Draft pick since 1997 and three consecutive postseason tournament berths including an NIT quarterfinal run in 2011.
Wilson, who was originally recruited by Cremins out of high school to play at Georgia Tech, opted to play for Florida State, where he was a sixth-year senior in 2005-06 and played in a school-record 129 games. He averaged a career-high 6.3 points per game, while helping the Seminoles to the second round of the NIT.
"Andrew is a young coach who has very good X's and O's skills," Cremins said. "He does a great job of recruiting the states of Georgia and Florida for our program. Atlanta is such an important area for us in recruiting and he has done a great job of finding us talent with his previous school ties to the area as a high school player."
The first player in ACC history to play in six different seasons due to two medical redshirts, Wilson still ranks among the top 15 on Florida State's all-time career list for three-pointers made (110). A three-time ACC Academic Team selection, four-time ACC Honor Roll and three-time Dean's List student, he is also tied for fourth all-time in the school's single-game records with a career-high seven threes made against North Carolina at the Dean Dome in 2004 and versus Virginia in 2006.
A 2000 graduate of Harrison High School in his hometown of Kennesaw, Ga., Wilson earned all-state first-team honors as a junior and senior under head coach Jerry Meuschke and finished his career as the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,215 points. He averaged over 18 points per game hitting 47 percent of his shots from beyond the three-point arc and 86 percent of his shots from the free throw line, while leading the Hoyas to a 22-5 record and into the state playoffs during his senior campaign.
Wilson earned his bachelor's degree in sport management from FSU in 2004 and later a master's degree in sports administration in 2006. He currently resides in Charleston and is single. His father, Tom, played baseball at Florida State.
