Williams Resigns as RSU Men’s Basketball Coach

TULSA, Okla. – Lloyd Williams has resigned as the head men’s basketball coach at Rogers State University after two seasons at the helm of the Hillcats’ flagship program.

Williams guided RSU to a 52-13 record in his first stint as a head coach and claimed the program’s first Sooner Athletic Conference championship in 2009. He was named the SAC Coach of the Year following the 2008-09 season. Williams’ teams appeared in the conference tournament championship game in 2008-09 and 2009-10, winning the tourney title in 2008-09. His first Hillcat squad achieved a No. 1 national ranking and was the first RSU athletics program to reach the NAIA National Tournament.

“I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished as a team during my time at Rogers State,” Williams said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity I was given here and excited to begin a new chapter in my life.”

Williams plans to pursue other coaching opportunities this spring. Prior to joining the Hillcats, he served as an assistant at the University of Texas-San Antonio for three seasons and also coached at Stillwater and Jenks High Schools.

“We’re very appreciative to Coach Williams for his efforts in leading the Rogers State men’s basketball program,” said RSU Athletic Director Wren Baker. “The Hillcats accomplished some great things under his leadership and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

Assistant coach Justin Barkley will take over the men’s basketball program on an interim basis. The search for Williams’ replacement will begin immediately.
