Wilson was honored with plenty of hardware for his work last year, nabbing both the Southeast Region and Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year honors.

His teams reached the national championship round of the NCAA Tournament in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Wilson guided the Bobcats to the 2000 Peach Belt Conference Championship, and he was named the league's Coach of the Year that season.
The Bobcats finished fifth at the NCAA National Tournament in 1998, 10th in 2000, tied for fifth in 2001, 10th in 2004, 15th in 2005, sixth in 2007 and fourth in 2008. Wilson has coached 16 All-Americans in his tenure with the Bobcats.
