Williams Fills GA Role on Husker Staff
Former Husker forward Meghin Williams will begin her pursuit of a coaching career as a graduate assistant manager on the Nebraska women's basketball staff in 2014-15, Coach Connie Yori announced on Friday.
Williams' primary responsibilities at Nebraska will include assisting with practice preparation and administrative duties, while coordinating Nebraska's efforts on Twitter and Facebook. She will also help coordinate Nebraska's practice players and will play a role with Nebraska Women's Basketball Camps.
"We're excited to give Meghin a chance to begin her career as a coach," Yori said. "Meghin played a major role in developing great team chemistry on some of the best teams in school history here at Nebraska. She has a great personality and had to overcome quite a bit of adversity as a player, which should serve her well in her future as a coach."
Williams, a four-year contributor on the court for Nebraska from 2009-10 through 2012-13, was a member of NU's first two NCAA Sweet 16 teams as a freshman in 2010 and a senior in 2013. She also helped the Huskers to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
Williams overcame nagging foot injuries throughout her career to play 98 career games. An outstanding leader, Williams helped the Huskers average nearly 24 wins per year during her four seasons at Nebraska.
Following the completion of the 2013-14 campaign when she worked as a student-assistant in the women's basketball office, Williams participated in the "So You Want to be a Coach" program at the WBCA National Convention in Nashville.
Williams earned her bachelor's degree in broadcasting from Nebraska in May of 2014 and is pursuing a master's degree in education administration.
