A longtime coaching veteran of the Atlantic Sun, Scott Wagers was brought to Jacksonville University by Tony Jasick for the 2014-15 season. Before spending the 2013-14 season at Lamar University, Wagers was on the staff of East Tennessee State for 13 seasons, helping the Buccaneers to six postseason berths and seven regular season conference titles.

A high school coach in Tennessee and Florida prior to his time at ETSU, Wagers was the head coach of Washburn High School in Washburn, Tennessee in the early 90s and was the Tennessee Athletic Coaches' Association District 1A Coach of the Year in 1993-94. After that, he spent five seasons at Robinson High School in Tampa from 1994-99. In those five years, the team won four divisional championships and two regional championships while putting together a record of 126-24. He was named the Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches' Association Coach of the Year in 1997-98 after taking his Robinson team to the Florida High School state semifinals. That team also earned St. Petersburg Times/Tampa Tribune Team of the Year honors.

Joining ETSU for the 2000-01 campaign, the Bucs went on to capture four consecutive Southern Conference North Division championships and make consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances in 2003 and 2004. After joining the Atlantic Sun, ETSU won regular season titles in 2007, 2009 and 2010 and went to the Big Dance in 2009 and 2010. The program also advanced to the NIT in 2007 and the Tournament in 2011.

In 2011, Wagers was named one of the Top 60 assistant coaches in NCAA Division I men’s basketball by Nike Villa 7. Of the assistants to be named to the Top 60, only one other came from a mid-major program.

Wagers is a 1989 graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan, where he was a member of the basketball team. He earned a B.S. in Health and Physical Education. Wagers and his wife, Stacey, have two children, Luke and Lola.
