WALESKA, Ga. – Former Georgia College Women's and Men's Basketball Assistant Coach Toby Wagoner has been named Reinhardt University's Head Women's Basketball coach, the Eagle Athletic Department announced recently.

Wagoner spent five seasons on the sidelines for GC Women's Hoops. While with the Bobcat women (2010-15), Wagoner helped direct the team to back-to-back Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Championship game appearances in 2013-14 and 2014-15. He also helped lead GC to the PBC Tournament Championship in 2010-11. Wagoner was instrumental in recruiting and coaching the program's all-time leading scorer and two-time Capital One Academic All-American, Shanteona Keys.

Wagoner worked with a mixture of players while with the Bobcats and served as the program's recruiting coordinator. His strong ties assisted in bringing in top-level talent both locally as well as from the Midwest and Northwest.

Prior to his time with the Bobcat women, Wagoner was a graduate assistant with the Georgia College men's basketball team. The Bobcat men went 22-6 in 2009-10, picking up a PBC West Division title. The men's squad also advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight season while Wagoner was with the program.

Wagoner most recently spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Division I Georgia Southern University.

Reinhardt is an NAIA program that competes in the Appalachian Athletic Conference.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner Cup and the 2017 PBC Sportsmanship Institution of the Year, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
