Michael Wilson Named As Long Beach State Men’s Golf Coach

Wilson will be the 11th head coach of the program following three years as an assistant coach at Washington.

Michael Wilson was hired as the 11th head coach of the Long Beach State Men's Golf program in July of 2017.

Wilson comes to the Beach after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Washington. While at Washington, Wilson helped the Huskies improve their finish at the Pac-12 Championships in each of his three seasons, most recently tying for third place in 2016-17 as Wilson managed the team while head coach Alan Murray was home for the birth of his child.

In each of his three seasons, Wilson helped Washington reach the NCAA Regionals, and the Huskies made an NCAA Championship appearance in 2015, finishing tied for 15th while Cheng-Tsung Pan finished as the individual runner-up.

Wilson entered coaching following three seasons on the Canadian Professional Golf Tour. He first worked as an assistant golf professional and lead instructor at Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, Calif., and then made the move into collegiate coaching at Washington.

His pro career came on the heels of a tremendous collegiate career at California. A top golfer with the Golden Bears, Wilson was the 2003 Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year, and played a big role in Cal's 2004 NCAA National Championship. During his time at California, Wilson was the individual winner of three tournaments, a school record.
