RICHMOND, Va. – VCU Women's Basketball head coach Beth O'Boyle has announced the promotion of Morgan Williams to assistant coach.
Williams had previously served on the VCU Women's Basketball staff as an administrative assistant since November of 2015. She helped with various aspects of the program's day-to-day operations in that role. Williams, a Dickinson, Texas native, played collegiately at Georgetown and appeared in 98 games for the Hoyas.
"I am excited to elevate Morgan to our assistant coaching position. Morgan has been a loyal, hard-working member of our program for the past four years. She bleeds Black and Gold and is an excellent role model for our student-athletes. Morgan's passion for the game and true commitment to our team have been an integral part of our success," O'Boyle said.
While playing for the Hoyas, Williams helped guide the team to three NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament appearances including a run to the Sweet 16 in 2011. The team was ranked for nearly 50 consecutive weeks and won at least 20 games in each of her four seasons. Williams' class was the winningest class in Georgetown history for either men or women's basketball.
"I'm extremely excited to continue my journey as a member of the VCU Women's Basketball family. I want to thank coach O'Boyle and the rest of the coaching staff for sticking with me and believing in me throughout my time at VCU. I'm grateful to be a Ram and to have the opportunity to help keep the program moving forward," Williams said.
Last season, VCU went 24-10 overall and 13-3 in Atlantic 10 play. The Rams clinched a share of the regular season conference championship for the first time in program history as well as the No. 1 overall seed in the A-10 Tournament. VCU advanced to the A-10 Championship game and earned a bid to the WNIT.
Williams was a standout player at Dickinson High School where she was a four-year letter winner and an all-state player. She was named to the DickINson High School Athletic Hall of Honor in 2016 for her achievements.
She is a 2012 graduate of Georgetown with a degree in sociology and completed her master's degree from VCU's Center for Sport Leadership in May of 2019.
