Williams arrived in Durham following six seasons at Georgetown. He served as a volunteer assistant coach for one campaign and an assistant coach for four seasons before being elevated to the role of associate head coach prior to the 2019 campaign.

During his six years with the Hoyas, Williams helped guide the program to a 57-55 ledger, including an impressive 34-10 mark in BIG EAST play. His time on the Hilltop was capped by the Hoyas’ run to the 2019 BIG EAST Championship, as the squad defeated Denver, 9-8, in double overtime to claim the program’s first conference tournament title since 2010. Georgetown went on to advance to the second round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

The 2019 Georgetown squad featured three on the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-South Region teams, as well as one second team All-American. During his time with the Hoyas, Williams tutored 10 all-region honorees to go along with 35 All-BIG EAST selections and two BIG EAST Midfielders of the Year.

Prior to arriving at Georgetown, Williams served as an assistant coach at Florida, overseeing the Gators’ defense. During the 2013 campaign, Florida went 18-3 and earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Williams’ previous coaching experience also includes two seasons as an assistant coach at Notre Dame (2010-12), where he worked with the team’s goalkeepers and defenders, and one season at his alma mater, Towson. At Towson, Williams assisted with both the offensive and defensive units, overseeing the 2010 CAA Player of the Year and three first team All-CAA selections. Prior to returning to his alma mater, Williams spent the spring of 2009 as an assistant coach at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., and served as the running backs coach at his high school alma mater – Calvert Hall College High School in Baltimore, Md., – during the fall of 2008.

A native of Baltimore, Williams was a four-year member of the men’s lacrosse program, helping the Tigers to a pair of CAA titles. He played in 61 career contests, recording 29 goals and 22 assists. Williams also excelled for Towson’s football program, rounding out his career on the gridiron as the fifth-leading rusher in school history with 1,985 yards.

Williams graduated from Towson in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in sports management. He received a master’s degree in sports industry management from Georgetown’s School of Continuing Studies in 2017.
