K.C. Hunt is entering his 10th season as the head men’s basketball coach Wilmington College, and during his tenure, he has helped bring the Fightin’ Quakers’ to national prominence.
Wilmington advanced to the NCAA Tournament via winning the OAC Tournament in 2010 and 2014. The Fightin’ Quakers advanced to the OAC championship game in 2012.
Entering the 2016-17 season, Hunt has a record of 128-112.
In his time, he has coached two All-Americans – including 2014 OAC Player of the Year Malcolm Heard – and six of the school’s 26 1,000-point scorers.
In 2009-10, Wilmington won a school-record 22 games and captured its first OAC Tournament title and made its first appearance in the NCAA Championship, where the Quakers advanced to the second round before losing to No. 10 Eastern Mennonite University. Hunt was named the 2010 Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year.
Hunt’s team plays 40 minutes of intense basketball that is fueled by relentless effort on both ends of the court. And it all starts with high-pressure defense.
Hunt played collegiate basketball at Wichita State University, and finished his career in the top 10 all-time in both steals and assists.
A 1995 graduate of The Ohio State University, Hunt coached at St. Lawrence University, Dublin Coffman and Perry high schools prior to joining Wilmington’s staff in 2004.
