Scott Woods Promoted to Associate Head Coach at Wright State news sponsored by Dr. Dish

Scott Woods, currently an assistant coach for the Wright State men’s basketball program, has been named associate head coach for the Raiders, WSU head coach Billy Donlon announced today.

“Scott has been a vital part of our success over the past eight seasons,” Donlon said. “He has excelled in all aspects of coaching. Current and former players have great respect and care for him because of his knowledge, loyalty and service to their betterment. Scott is going to make a terrific head coach one day.”

Woods has been with the Raiders for eight seasons, including the last five as an assistant coach under Donlon. The Indiana native has helped the Raiders to two post-season appearances in 2013 and 2014, as WSU has received nine All-Horizon League honors during that time. Wright State has posted 148 wins with Woods on staff. He was hired as Director of Operations in 2007 by former WSU head coach Brad Brownell after coaching stints at Saginaw Valley State, Manchester College, and DePauw University.

“I am extremely grateful to Coach Donlon for this opportunity,” Woods said. “I have had the luxury of learning from two outstanding head coaches during my eight years at Wright State. I am both humbled and excited to work in this capacity for Wright State basketball.”

Woods, from 2004-07, played a large role in reviving Saginaw Valley State, a Division II program. The 2006-07 SVSU squad recorded its highest conference placement since the 1997-98 campaign. While an assistant coach at Manchester College from 1998-04, Woods was part of a staff that reached the 100-win mark faster than any coaching staff in school history. Manchester won two conference titles and went to the 1998 Sweet Sixteen during his 6-year tenure.

Woods graduated in 1993 from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. In 2003, he was inducted into Rose-Hulman’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
