Charlie Woollum

Charlie R. Woollum was the head coach for the Bucknell Bison men's basketball team from 1975-1994.[1] During his 19 years at the program's helm, Woollum compiled a 318-221 record. This victory total is higher than that of any other coach in any one sport in Bucknell’s intercollegiate athletic history.[1] The Bison reached the NCAA Tournament in 1987 and 1989 by winning the East Coast Conference Tournament.[1] Woollum also won six regular-season conference titles (1984, 1985, 1987, 1989, 1992, 1993), three ECC and one Patriot League Coach of the Year awards, coached 27 all-conference players, three league players of the year, six Academic All-Americans and all top seven scorers in school history.[1] He was inducted into the Bucknell Hall of Fame in 1995.[1]

Following his highly successful career at Bucknell, Woollum moved on to coach his alma mater, the William & Mary Tribe men's basketball team from 1994-2000.[2] During his six-year tenure, Woollum compiled an overall record of 69-84 (39-52 in conference play).[2] He guided the Tribe to the program's only CAA regular season championship in 1998 after finishing 13-3 in the conference.[2]

Today he serves as a play-by-play radio commentator for the William & Mary men's basketball team.
