Wes Long joined the Chattanooga Mocs basketball program in May 2013 shortly after the hiring of Will Wade as the 18th Head Men’s Basketball. One of Wade’s first tasks was to talk his fellow Clemson alum into joining him in the Scenic City.

Long came to Chattanooga from Queens University of Charlotte where he spent eight seasons. He was the Royals head coach the final five years of that stint amassing a 75-66 record, 55-30 over his final three campaigns.

There certainly were a lot of bragging points on and off the court. He led Queens to back-to-back Conference Carolinas titles in 2011 and 2012. The 2011 league championship was the first in eight seasons for the program. He earned conference coach of the year honors in 2011 directing the Royals to the NCAA Southeast Region Tournament entering as the No. 4 seed.

Long signed and mentored the Royals’ top two all-time scorers in Reggie Hopkins (1,810 points) and Dan Bailey (1,780), as well as No. 6 on the list, Antonio Stabler (1,390). His squads boasted three NABC All-Region performers, four first team all-league picks and two league freshmen of the year.

Equally important to Long is the academic record his program achieved. His student-athletes had five of the seven highest grade point averages in program history during his tenure.

His entire post-graduate coaching career has been at Queens. He started out as an assistant in 2004-05 to Brian Good.  He then ascended into the head coaching position in 2008. His move to Charlotte came after graduation from Clemson in May 2004.

Long played and coached as an undergraduate with the Tigers. He was a walk-on for the 2000-01 season before shifting to a student assistant role for his final three seasons. He played for the Clemson squad that captured a 75-65 win over No. 1 North Carolina in 2001.

He completed his bachelor’s degree in Business Management in May 2004 at Clemson. That was followed with a Master’s in Business Administration in May 2007 at Queens. He is a native of Mauldin, S.C.
