Wes Davis enters his fifth season as assistant coach with the men’s and women’s soccer teams. In addition to his coaching duties, he will also be significantly involved in recruiting.
Davis has spent the majority of his career coaching in the North Coast Athletic Conference, most recently at Oberlin College, where he totaled six seasons with the men’s soccer program, including the last three as associate head coach (2010-12).
Prior to Oberlin, Davis was an assistant women’s soccer coach at University of Wis.-Lacrosse (2005-06), and before that, he began his coaching career with a three-year stint as an assistant at former NCAC institution Earlham College under head coach Roy Messer, a 1970 Wooster grad who played for legendary coach Bob Nye, and someone Davis considers a good friend and mentor.
As a collegiate athlete, Davis was a four-year letterwinner at NCAA Div. III Central College in Pella, Iowa, and was a team captain during the 1997 and 1998 seasons. He graduated from Central College in 2000, and later earned a master’s degree in sports management from the United States Sports Academy (2006).
Davis and his wife Sarah, the head volleyball coach at the College, reside in Wooster with their daughters Nora (8), Eliza (6), and Lillian (1).
