The 2016-17 campaign will mark the third at Marquette University for head coach Steve Wojciechowski, who has enjoyed a wealth of success in collegiate basketball as both a player and a coach.

Wojciechowski (pronounced woe-ju-HOW-skee) was introduced as the program’s 17th head coach on April 1, 2014 by Marquette University President Dr. Michael R. Lovell. From the moment he arrived on campus, Wojciechowski established his “Win Every Day” philosophy as the foundation for the Marquette program. That approach has been extremely successful on the recruiting trail, where the MU staff has been able to assemble a back-to-back nationally ranked recruiting classes in 2015 and 2016.

The Golden Eagles collected a 20-win campaign in 2015-16 under Wojciechowski and advanced to the quarterfinals of the BIG EAST Conference Tournament. The team’s on-court success was led by Henry Ellenson, the league’s freshman of the year and first-round NBA Draft selection by the Detroit Pistons. Ellenson was the program’s first McDonald’s All-America honoree in over 30 years and a top-10 rated prospect.

The Golden Eagles claimed their first win under Wojciechowski in the season opener in 2014-15. The 79-63 win over UT Martin at the BMO Harris Bradley Center was his first as a head coach at the NCAA Division I level. The season also produced wins over Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Arizona State.

Wojciechowski, 40, had previously served as an assistant coach at Duke since the 1999-2000 season and was promoted to associate head coach in the summer of 2008. As a player and coach, he was a part of Duke's winning tradition, serving on the coaching staff for two NCAA tournament champions. During his tenure, the Blue Devils posted an incredible 441-92 record and competed in the NCAA tournament every year.

Wojciechowski also served as court coach and scout for the USA Basketball Men's National Team. He helped lead on-court duties as well as game preparation from 2006-12, including the program's gold-medal performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics. The Olympic teams included NBA greats such as Marquette alumnus Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

Earning national titles

In 2001, in his second year as an assistant at Duke, Wojciechowski and the Blue Devils won the national championship. The team also captured the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament crowns and posted a 35-4 record.

Wojciechowski saw one of his former teammates and pupils, Shane Battier, earn the consensus National Player of the Year award in 2001 as well as National Defensive Player of the Year for the third consecutive season.

Wojciechowski achieved repeated success at the highest level with an NCAA title in the 2009-10 season as associate head coach. On the road to the championship, the Blue Devils also won the ACC Tournament, the ACC Regular Season and NIT Season Tip-Off titles. Defense and rebounding were key for the Blue Devils who had one of the nation's top defenses, holding opponents to 61.0 points per game, and ranked 14th out of 334 teams in rebounding margin.

As a player, Wojciechowski (who was often referred to as "Wojo,") was named the top defensive player in the country his senior year, a two-time All-ACC choice and honorable mention Associated Press All-America. He appeared in 128 career games for the Blue Devils and earned 88 starting assignments.

Wojciechowski is a native of Severna Park, Md., and a first-generation college student, having earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Duke in 1998.

He and his wife Lindsay have two sons, Jack and Charlie.
