College – Johns Hopkins
In his tenth year as a member of the Wizards organization, Wes Unseld Jr. is in his second season as Assistant Coach.
Just four days after his graduation from The Johns Hopkins University in 1997, Unseld began his career in scouting, with both professional and collegiate responsibilities to the Wizards organization. Promoted to advance scout in his first season, the thirty-one-year-old Unseld has reached a decade of service in Washington.
The Wizards’ ultimate source of scouting reports both on opposing teams and individuals, Unseld plays a vital role in game planning and preparation. In 2004-05, Unseld was an invaluable member of a staff that guided Washington to its first postseason series victory in over two decades, and his player development skills were paramount to a coaching staff that led the Wizards to a second consecutive playoff appearance in 2005-06; his first season as an Assistant Coach.
In addition to his nine-year tenure as Advance Pro Scout for the Wizards, Unseld also spent three seasons as an advance scout for the WNBA’s Washington Mystics (1998-2000). In 1998, he spent part of the season serving as Assistant Coach for the Mystics.
