About Doug Wojcik


Doug Wojcik is a veteran college basketball coach with more than 25 years of experience. Currently, Wojcik is the recruiting coordinator for head coach Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans. A Division I head coach for nine years, Wojcik averaged 20 wins per season while compiling an overall record of 178-121 (.595), and an overall conference record of 88-58 (.602). In addition to his teams’ success on the court, all 21 of Wojcik’s senior student-athletes earned their degrees, achieving a nine-year graduation rate of 100 percent.  

Prior to returning to Michigan State, Wojcik spent a season at East Carolina University, and the 2015-16 season at Gonzaga University, where the Bulldogs earned their fourth-straight West Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles, their 18th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, and a second-straight Sweet 16 berth with a 28-8 overall record. 

Wojcik spent two seasons as the Head Coach at the College of Charleston (2012-14), where he led his team to a 38‐29 overall mark. In his first season, the team posted a 24‐11 record, including a 14‐4 regular-season conference record and an appearance in the Southern Conference championship game.

In year two, Wojcik transitioned his second Division I program into a higher‐ranked conference. In its inaugural year in the Colonial Athletic Association, College of Charleston led the league in scoring defense (62.7 ppg) and rebounding margin (+5.5), which ranked 27th and 20th nationally.
