Wesley Brooks is in his Fourth season as an assistant coach at Michigan where he works with the guards and wings. Coach Brooks helped develop Amy Dilk into a 2nd Team all conference guard in her sophomore season, as well as, Naz Hilmon into WBCA All American and 1st Team All Big 10.

The Wolverines made their second consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance in 2018-19, advancing to the second round after an 84-54 win over Kansas State in the first round. Naz Hillmon racked up the postseason honors, earning Big Ten Freshman of the Year (media), Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year and was a consensus All-Big Ten first teamer, while Hallie Thome grabbed her third straight All-Big Ten first-team nod. With the Wolverines sitting at 12-9 and 10th in the Big Ten at 3-6 on Jan. 27, Michigan ripped off seven straight games in the month of February to vault into a fourth-place finish in the conference (11-7). Michigan reached the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament for the first time since 2001 in route to wrapping up an NCAA Tournament bid. Brooks spent two seasons at Utah, helping the Utes to 34 wins and a pair of postseason appearances in the WNIT. He was responsible for recruiting and assisted in post player development. Brooks also helped with extra skill development workouts with the team and ran the Utah Elite Women's Basketball Camp. Forward Emily Potter earned a spot on the PAC-12 All-Defensive Team and was an honorable mention selection by the coaches in 2017.

Prior to joining the coaching staff at Utah, Brooks was an assistant coach at North Texas for four seasons (2011-15) and at Texas Southern (2008-11). He also spent a season on the sidelines at Robert Morris (2007-08). Loryn Goodwin of North Texas was named the 2012 Sun Belt Freshman of the Year, Sade Logan was named the Northeastern Conference Player of the Year (2008) and two players at Robert Morris were named to the all-conference team under Brooks.

Brooks got his start at West Virginia, serving as a graduate assistant coach for two seasons (2004-06) and as the director of basketball operations for one year (2006-07). He graduated from WVU in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism and received his master's of science in athletic coaching education in 2006. During his time as an undergraduate student at West Virginia, he served as a manager for the men's basketball program under former U-M head coach John Beilein.
