Wes Davis enters his seventh season as assistant coach of the women's soccer team. Davis also served as a men's soccer assistant coach during his first four years at the College with 2017 marking the first season exclusively with the women's program as both soccer teams at the College now have a dedicated full-time assistant coach.
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.-La Crosse (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 (10), Eliza (7), and Lillian (2).
