Frederick Douglas Wojcik (pronounced WO-jick) (born April 12, 1964) is a veteran college basketball coach with more than 25 years of experience. Currently, Wojcik is an assistant men's basketball coach at East Carolina University, a member of the American Athletic Conference (AAC). 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. He is the winningest coach in the storied history of the University of Tulsa, with 140 wins. He is a native of Wheeling, West Virginia.
In high school, he played at Wheeling Central Catholic High School under the prolific Skip Prosser, who would go on to coach at Loyola (MD), Xavier and Wake Forest. Wojcik graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1987 and served in the Navy until 1992. While at Navy, Wojcik had a very successful playing career as a three-year starter at point guard for the Midshipmen alongside Hall of Famer David Robinson, amassing several team records for assists. He also received the prestigious Coaches' Calvert Award presented by the Naval Academy Athletic Association. Once Wojcik completed his military service he returned to Annapolis as an assistant coach. Wojcik continued his coaching career at Notre Dame, North Carolina and Michigan State until he was hired for his first head coaching job by Tulsa. He was considered one of the top assistants in the country, being named a "Head Coach in the Waiting" by Athlon Sports in 2001 and by ESPN's Jay Bilas in 2003. Wojcik was also recognized as "Assistant Coach on the Rise" by Andy Katz of ESPN.com.
University of Tulsa
In the 2005–06 season, his first year as a head coach, Wojcik led the Golden Hurricane to an 11–17 record, an improvement over two consecutive 9-win seasons in 2003–04 and 2004–05. His second season saw more improvement, with a final 20–11 overall record and a 9–7 Conference USA record, TU's first winning conference record in three years.
During the 2011-12 season, Wojcik won his 138th game at Tulsa, passing Clarence Iba as the winningest coach in school history. However, citing a decline in season ticket sales, Tulsa fired him on March 11, 2012.
College of Charleston
In July 2014, an internal investigation found it "likely" Wojcik had been verbally abusive toward players. Outgoing president P. George Benson retained but suspended Wojcik for the month of August.  On August 6, new president Glenn McConnell announced that Wojcik had been fired for "just cause." Since Wojcik was still under contract, the matter was briefly disputed between the two parties. However, in September 2014, Charleston and Wojcik reached a settlement, and agreed not to make further comments on the issue.
East Carolina University
Doug Wojcik was named the assistant men's basketball coach for East Carolina University on Sept. 1, 2017.
