Photos from the first week of practice for the 2013-14 Boston University men's basketball team.
Entering his third season with the Terriers, Wilson joined head coach Joe Jones and his staff in July of 2011 after working at the Ivy League's Yale University for 12 seasons, including the last five as associate head coach.
"Curtis is a tremendous coach whose experience and knowledge will be invaluable to the program," Jones said of his hiring. "He is a hard-working family man who will serve as a great role model to our players. I have known Coach Wilson for over 15 years and am thrilled to finally have the opportunity to work with him."
Working at Yale under Joe Jones' older brother, James, Wilson played a key role in the turnaround of the basketball program. In 2001-02, the Bulldogs won their first Ivy League title since 1962-63 and earned the first postseason tournament victory in the history of Yale basketball. The team won 21 games, the second most in the modern era of Yale basketball, and reached the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.
Promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2006-07 season, Wilson helped the Bulldogs record a .500 or better record in league play for nine consecutive years (2000-09), which hasn't happened at Yale since the official start of Ivy play in 1956-57. Before joining James Jones, Wilson spent five years as an assistant to Tom Brennan at Vermont and three years at his alma mater, Adelphi. In 1994, Wilson helped guide the Panthers to the Division II ECAC championship.
Graduating in 1991, Wilson remains fifth all-time on the Adelphi scoring list with 1,531 career points. A four-time basketball letterwinner and co-captain of the team for three years, he received his bachelor's degree in business administration and finance and later earned a master's degree in sports management from Adelphi in 1994. In the spring of 2001, he was inducted into the Adelphi Athletic Hall of Fame.
