Peter Wilkerson will enter his third season in 2016-17 as the full-time assistant coach for the men's basketball program.
Wilkerson, a graduate of Covenant in 2013, spent one season at Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri. His job duties included game analytics, redshirt development and overseeing the recruit database for the NCAA Division II program.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to coach not only at the collegiate level, but at my alma mater," said Wilkerson at the time of his hiring.
Through the first two years that Wilkerson has been on staff, Covenant has recorded 27 victories, including a trip to the NCAA Tournament after claiming the USA South Tournament chanpionship in 2016.
During his time as a student at Covenant, Wilkerson was a part of the men's basketball program as either a player or a student assistant for then-head coach Kyle Taylor. Wilkerson graduated in 2013 with a degree in History.
He and his wife, Samantha, were married in February of 2016 and reside in Chattanooga, Tenn.
