    Assistant Coach

    Marc Wilson is in his second season as an assistant coach at Indiana.

    Wilson was instrumental in the development of the 2007 Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year Jamie Braun and All-Big Ten Third Team selection Sarah McKay.

    A veteran assistant and a well-known recruiter, Wilson returned to the Big Ten Conference after successful stints at Kent State, Rhode Island and Minnesota.

    Wilson joined the Indiana staff after serving as an assistant coach at Kent State the previous two seasons. Wilson was instrumental in leading Kent State to back-to-back Mid-American Conference title games during his tenure. In 2005-06, the Golden Flashes finished with an overall record of 21-9 and a 12-4 ledger in conference play.

    Under long-time Kent State coach Bob Lindsay, Wilson helped mentor the development of guards Melissa DeGrate and Malika Willoughby, who both earned All-MAC honors in 2005. Willoughby is also a two-time Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

    Prior to his term at Kent State, Wilson served as an assistant at Rhode Island from 2001-04. At URI, he worked primarily with the post players and served as the team's recruiting coordinator. He helped lead the Rams to the 2003 Atlantic-10 championship game.

    Wilson spent four seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, the University of Minnesota, from 1997-01. Known for his ability to recruit some of the country's finest student-athletes, Wilson was instrumental in the recruitment of two-time All-American and the Golden Gophers all-time leading scorer, Lindsay Whalen, now with the WNBA's Connecticut Sun, and Janel McCarville, the top overall pick of the 2005 WNBA Draft by the Charlotte Sting.

    In the summer of 1998, Wilson served as a member of the Big Ten All-Star coaching staff that traveled overseas, taking on some of Europe's top club programs.

    Wilson was a four-year letterwinner at the University of Minnesota from 1982-86. He ranks among the top 10 all-time in career scoring (1,386), field goals made (540), free throws made (306), free throw attempts (428) and assists (375). He was the 1986 Co-Team Most Valuable Player and team captain, while also earning All-Big Ten Honorable Mention honors in 1983 and 1986.

    Wilson is married to Jeanell Hughes. The couple has one son, Marc II.
