Gary Wilson is a class act. I first met him when he coached at Wisconsin La Crosse. One of the athletes that I coached in high school ran for him there. He always had the best interests of the athletes as the most important aspect of his program. Have fun in retirement Gary.

Coach Wilson has done more for Gopher athletics than most people realize. Gary and Suzy have been involved in more than cross country and track. They are true, honest, loyal people and the world of collegiate athletics, already so short on these type of people, will be miss their influence on our young people. To the Wilsons, nothing but the best!

I second the previous commenters' sentiments on Coach Wilson's personal qualities, and want to add that I don't think people realize just how good the Gopher CC program has been. They have qualified for nationals the last eight years in a row, which means they are consistently in the top 20 or 30 of the roughly 300 or so Division I programs. And he has done it almost entirely with runners from MN, WI, SD, ND, and Iowa.
