W&L Names Matt Williams Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach

Washington and Lee Director of Athletics Jan Hathorn has announced the appointment of Matt Williams as assistant men’s basketball coach effective October 5.

Williams comes to W&L from Hampden-Sydney, where he served as an assistant coach last season. The Tigers finished 10th in the ODAC last year, and Williams was involved in all the day-to-day operations of the team, including recruiting potential student-athletes, on-court coaching during games and practices and leading film sessions in preparation for upcoming contests.

Before heading to Hampden-Sydney, Williams was an assistant coach at Millsaps during the 2016-17 season. With the Majors, he was the recruiting and video coordinator. He oversaw player development, travel and also assisted in recruiting and preparing scouting reports.

Williams is a 2016 graduate of Davidson College with a bachelor of science in psychology. He was a two-year member of the men’s basketball team for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. The Wildcats claimed the Atlantic 10 regular season championship in 2015, and the team won at least 20 games both seasons.
