Colgate Picks Wiley as New Women’s Coach

Colgate has named Scott Wiley its new women’s coach. Wiley replaces Ted Wisner, who served as head coach of the Raiders for three seasons, including their first in Division I last season. Wiley served as an assistant coach under Wisner for three seasons.

“I’m very excited about the future of the program under Scott,” Colgate athletic director Mark Murphy said. “Scott has been big part of the success the program has enjoyed over the last three years.

“Both he and Ted Wisner did an excellent job in transitioning the team to the Division I level last year. The players on the team have great respect for him and I am confident that the program will continue to improve under his leadership.”

Wiley is a 1993 St. Lawrence graduate, where he was captain of the men’s soccer team and team most valuable player during his senior season. He was also a first team Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association member, and a regional Academic All-American in 1993.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to become a head coach at an institution that I believe so strongly in,” Wiley said. “I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead and am confident that we have the pieces in place to take this program to the next level.

“I would like to thank Mark Murphy and everyone in the athletic department for giving me an opportunity that I have been waiting for my entire life. It gives me a great deal of confidence knowing that there was so much support for my candidacy.”

Wiley has also worked as a Director of Marketing for Bickle/Smith Motorsports in Mooresville, N.C. as well as the Program Coordinator for Ignition, Inc. in Manchester, Vt.
