    Chris Wilson enters his fourth season on the Air Force coaching staff and first as the associate head coach in 2013-14.

    "I am very excited to name Chris our associate head coach, it is a well-deserved promotion," said Air Force head coach George Koury. "Chris has been a tremendous addition to our program. Our recent on course success and growth as a program are due to his tireless efforts on and off of the course. We are poised to continue to progress as a program and will work to achieve the next level in college golf, while continuing to produce leaders for our Air Force."

    During his three years at the Academy, Wilson helped the Falcons win the Service Academy Classic each season and helped last year's team shatter the school record for average team score by more than five strokes per tournament.

    Prior to joining the coaching staff at the Academy, Wilson was the associate head coach for two seasons at Coastal Carolina University, helping the Chanticleers win back-to-back Big South Conference titles, extending their run to seven-straight conference championships. Wilson was also instrumental in the running of the Chants' program, handling many of the day-to-day operations, helping run the General Hackler Championship and coordinating recruiting.

    Wilson arrived at Coastal Carolina in the fall of 2009 from the University of Louisiana-Monroe, where he spent four and a half years as the head men's and women's golf coach. Combined, his Warhawk squads had three tournament wins, 35 top-five team finishes, six individual medalists, 13 all-conference selections and six Golf Coaches Association of America and National Golf Coaches Association All-America Scholars.

    While at ULM, Wilson led the men's program to its highest national rankings in 2005 and 2006, earning Southland Coach of the Year honors in 2006. He also started the women's program in August 2005 and both squads were consistently ranked among the top grade-point averages for athletic teams on the ULM campus. He also raised a majority of the funds for each of his programs, while also coordinating all aspects of each squad's practice and travel.

    Prior to taking over as head coach at ULM, he worked for two years at McNeese State, starting as the head coach and eventually serving as interim head men's coach before leaving to take the job at ULM. While there, Wilson coached four-time all-conference selection and current European PGA Tour member Adrien Mork. He also worked with two other all-conference players and helped lead the Cowboys to a pair of team tournament titles.

    A native of Shawnee, Okla., Wilson started his coaching career at Louisiana-Monroe as an assistant coach for a year, where he helped recruit the 17th-ranked class in the country. That group eventually went on to earn seven all-conference awards, a pair of individual tournament champions and the 2004 Southland Conference Championship.

    Wilson, who earned his bachelor's degree from ULM in 2001, was a standout golfer for the Warhawks, playing two years and earning all-conference honors as a senior after winning the New Mexico State Intercollegiate and posting five top-10 finishes on the season. He was also an all-conference selection at Dodge City Community College in 1996-97.

    Wilson is married to the former Heather Austin of Shreveport, La.
