Montgomery College-Germantown Hires Former Student-Athlete, Stu Wilson, as New Head Men’s Basketball Coach
Montgomery College-Germantown has named Stu Wilson as the new head men’s basketball coach. Wilson returns to Montgomery College’s Germantown Campus where he played basketball for two seasons (1992-94) and brings 14 years of coaching experience at both the collegiate and high school ranks.
“I want to thank Athletic Director Mark Crutchfield for the great opportunity to be the new basketball coach at Montgomery College-Germantown,” Wilson said. “It’s an honor to work with such great faculty, students, staff, and the community, as well as follow in the footsteps of great coaches before me.” Wilson becomes the fourth head coach in the history of the program. He takes over for former head coach Xavier Joyner, who was recently named head men’s basketball coach at Prince George’s Community College.
Wilson spent last season as an assistant varsity basketball coach at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Bethesda, Md. Prior to Bethesda-Chevy Chase, he was an assistant coach at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va., under Joe Wootten, son of legendary DeMatha Catholic High School coach and Montgomery College alumnus Morgan Wootten (’52). Prior to joining the O’Connell staff, Wilson was assistant men’s basketball coach at McDaniel College in Westminster, Md. During his four years at McDaniel College, he was responsible for all aspects of the basketball program, including academic adviser, head recruiter, player development, and strength and conditioning.
“Coach Wilson understands the MC-Germantown community, and the work it takes to be a successful student-athlete at Montgomery College,” said Mark Crutchfield, athletic director at MC-Germantown. “Being a former MC-Germantown student-athlete gives him a great advantage in mentoring our students.”
Wilson earned a master’s degree in exercise science with a professional focus in athletic administration from McDaniel College. He holds an undergraduate degree in history with a minor in education from Marymount University.
Currently, Wilson is the physical education and health coordinator at St. Michael’s School in Annandale, Va. Wilson and his wife, Erin, have two children and reside in Germantown.
