A four-year letter winner in net at Saint Mary's College in Moraga, Calif., Kellan Wilson spent four seasons (2012-15) as a volunteer assistant with the Cal State Fullerton women's program working primarily with the Titan goalkeepers.
Wilson was part of an historic four-year (2012-15) stretch of Cal State Fullerton women's soccer. During his time with the Titans, Fullerton won three Big West Conference regular season championships (2012, 2014, 2015), three Big West Tournament titles (2013, 2014, 2015) and made three NCAA Tournament appearances (2013, 2014, 2015), totaling a 44-27-12 (.602) overall record and a 22-7-4 (.727) mark in the Big West Conference.
Most recently in 2015, the Titans produced their fifth consecutive winning season and Cal State Fullerton received its first NSCAA national ranking since 2008, while setting records for most home wins (11) and fewest defeats (3) in a single season.
In 2014, Fullerton went undefeated for the second time in Big West Conference matches (6-0-2).
Wilson tutored Big West Conference Goalkeepers of the Year Lindsey Maricic (2013) and Jennifer Stuart as well as Big West Tournament MVP Katie Pulliam (2013).
In 2013, Maricic anchored a Titan defense that led the Big West in goals allowed (17) and goals against average (0.71) while also totaling seven shutouts. She also led the conference in saves (104), goals against average (0.73) and save percentage (.867). Maricic ranked among the top 100 goalkeepers in the country in four different categories: No. 10 in save percentage (.867), No. 62 in saves per game (5.20), No. 33 in goals against average (0.730) and No. 35 in saves (104).
In 2015, Stuart ranked fourth in the Big West Conference with a 0.86 goals against average, second with an 0.837 save percentage and her 4.28 saves per game also rated second in the league. In Big West Conference games only, she led the league in goals against average (0.39) after allowing only three goals in seven matches. She also led the league in save percentage (.900) and shutouts (4).
As a collegian, Wilson played four seasons for the Gaels in 1999-2003, leading the West Coast Conference in saves three times with 115 stops in 2000, 85 more in 2001, and 110 in 2003 as a senior. He ranks second all-time in school history with 311 saves, seventh in career goals against average (1.66), second in wins (22), tied for fourth in shutouts (9.5), and fifth in minutes played (4,620).
Following his career at Saint Mary's, Wilson's playing career included professional stints overseas in Germany with VFL Osnabruck (2005-08) and Finland with Helsinki IFK (2010-11), helping the latter to the championship of the Finnish 2nd Division, and a stop with the San Francisco Seals in the USL's Premier Development League in 2008-09 where he stepped away from his spot in net to lead the team in goals.
Wilson's coaching experience includes three years as the junior varsity coach at Acalanes High School in Lafayette, Calif., one season at his alma mater in 2008-09, and one year with the Seals in 2009-10.
Wilson graduated from Saint Mary's College with a bachelor's degree in communications in 2003. He and his wife, Maija, reside in Newport Coast, Calif., with their daughter, Madeleine. Originally from Finland, Maija was a four-year starter in basketball at Saint Mary's who also competed for the country's national team.
