Frederick Douglas Wojcik (pronounced WO-jick) (born April 12, 1964) is an American college basketball coach and the former men's basketball head coach at the College of Charleston. Previously, he was the men's basketball head coach at the University of Tulsa. He is a native of Wheeling, West Virginia.
In high school he played 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. 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
Wojcik became head coach at the College of Charleston in 2012 and coached two seasons there, taking the Cougars to the Southern Conference tournament finals in 2013. He was fired in August 2014 amid allegations of verbal abuse toward players and assistant coaches.
