From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eddie Fogler is a former college basketball player at the University of North Carolina from 1967-1970 where he was a point guard on two final four teams. He is also a former college basketball coach at the University of North Carolina, Wichita State University, Vanderbilt University, and University of South Carolina. From 1986 to 1989, he served as head coach at Wichita State University where he compiled a 61-32 (.656) record which included two NCAA appearances and one NIT berth.

From 1989 to 1992, Fogler served as the head basketball coach at Vanderbilt where he compiled an 81-48 record. His 1989-90 team captured the NIT Championship with a 74-72 victory over St. Louis University. His 1992-93 team was ranked as high as #5 in the country and went 28-6, including a 14-2 record in the SEC, a trip to the NCAA Tournament's "Sweet Sixteen", and he was named national coach of the year after winning the SEC championship. In the four years that he led Vanderbilt, the Commodores achieved two NIT births and two NCAA Tournament bids. Fogler's move from Vanderbilt to South Carolina, following the success of 1993, left many Vanderbilt fans embittered toward the school's Athletic Director, Paul Hoolahan, and his handling of the matter.[1]

From 1994 to 2001, Fogler coached at South Carolina and led the Gamecocks to the SEC championship in 1997. He led the Gamecocks to two NCAA Tournaments. He compiled a 123-117(.513) record at USC. Commenting after his final game as a head coach, Fogler stated "It is very difficult with college athletics being the way it is today and the pressures. You are darned if you do, darned if you don't," Fogler said. "I'm leaving college basketball with my dignity, my integrity and my sanity."[2]

Fogler now serves as an analyst for Fox Sports Network and resides in Elgin, S.C. with his wife, Robin, daughter, Emma, and son, Ben.
