Angela (Farley) Wilson was named the head women's tennis coach at the University of Cincinnati on Sept. 30, 2008. Wilson, a Cincinnati native, begins her sixth season at the helm of the Bearcats program in the 2013-14 season.

In her first season at UC, the Bearcats rattled off win streaks of four and seven matches and two players earned BIG EAST Conference Player of the Week honors (Ksenia Slynko and Jennifer Rowen). Cincinnati finished the year with a 16-9 overall record, the first time since the 1999-00 season that a UC tennis team posted 15 or more wins in a season and only the fourth time in program history that a team earned 16 wins in a season. The Bearcats qualified for the BIG EAST Tournament as the No. 8 seed and advanced to the third round.

In 2010 the Bearcats finished with an 11-13 overall record, earned a No. 9 seed of the BIG EAST Tournament and advanced to the second round.

In 2012 she guided an injury-ridden team to a ninth place finish at the BIG EAST Championship. The Bearcats, with only six healthy players, downed Seton Hall 4-0 in the consolation bracket of the tournament.

She led the team to a 13-11 record in 2013, including six straight wins from March 21 to April 7. The team fell in the first round of the BIG EAST Championship, but rebounded for three straight wins to close the season on a high note and earn a ninth place finish in the league.

Since her arrival at UC, 13 players have earned BIG EAST all-Academic Team honors (7 in 2008-09 and 6 in 2009-10). To be eligible for the honor, a nominee must have competed in a BIG EAST-sponsored sport, earned a varsity letter, attained a minimum grade-point average of 3.00 for the preceding academic year.

Wilson joined UC after starting a family-owned club in 2004, the Western Tennis and Fitness Club in Western Hills. She began as the Director of Tennis and was named Director of Operations and Tennis in January of 2006. In her tenure at Western, she has directed the overall operations while being heavily involved in the elite junior development program, which has turned out several college players.

Wilson brings a wealth of experience to the Bearcats having played and coached throughout her life. Prior to the Western Tennis and Fitness Club, she was the Director of Junior Tennis for two years in Crestview, Ky., at the Five Seasons Sports Club, creating junior programs for varying levels, including nationally-ranked junior players. Her experience coaching with nationally-renowned college players goes back to 1991 when she was an assistant coach for the United States Tennis Association (USTA) at the 1991 World University Games.

Wilson has spent a great deal of her time helping grow the sport of tennis in Cincinnati as a USTA training center coach, starting in 2005 when she launched the Greater Cincinnati Tennis Association (GCTA) 10-and-Under Training Center.

A well respected coach, Wilson is able to draw on a wealth of playing experience which started as a high school player at Indian Hill High school in Cincinnati. At Indian Hill, Wilson was a nationally-ranked junior player at both the 16 and under and 18 and under levels. After earning an Ohio High School double championship in 1981 and making it to the singles finals in 1982, Wilson went on to a four-year career at Indiana University (1983-87). In her four years in Bloomington, she was twice named team captain and was a part of two Big Ten titles (1984, 1987). In 1987, Wilson was named first-team all-Big Ten as she helped the Hoosiers to their second NCAA Tournament appearance.

Wilson's playing career extends beyond her college career as she has captured six Cincinnati Metropolitan Tennis Championship titles overall and five since 2003, including last year's women's doubles title. In 2006, she was named the Greater Cincinnati Tennis Association's Player of the Year and winner of the Carol Brestel Award for volunteering and promoting junior tennis in the Cincinnati area.

Wilson was selected as one of four inductees to the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame and was enshrined on August 15, 2009 as part of ceremonies during the women's semifinals and the men's qualifying for the Western & Southern Financial Group Master & Women's open.

A 1987 graduate of Indiana University with a degree in accounting, Wilson lives in Cincinnati with her husband, Webster, and their four children.
