William Yomby is entering his second season with the Black & Gold.
During much of the year, Yomby is playing with the local USL pro squad, the Richmond Kickers. The rest of the year, he is serving as the volunteer Director of Operations for Head Coach Dave Giffard and the Rams.
“We are excited to add William to our coaching staff for this fall. He is a bright and well-spoken young coach who still plays the game at a high level and is a wonderful role model for our student athletes," Giffard said. "I’m looking forward to working with William both on and off the field and look forward to the things that he will add to the program.”
Yomby brings quite a playing pedigree to VCU, having played professionally since he was drafted in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by the Kansas City Wizards. After being selected as the 23rd overall pick, Yomby has also played for the Puerto Rico Islanders (USL first division) and the Kickers.
In his college days, Yomby was an All-CAA defender at Old Dominion. He helped the Monarchs to three straight NCAA Tournaments during his time in Norfolk.
Originally from Bafoussam, Cameroon, Yomby now resides in Richmond.
