FORMER LU COACH TO LEAD SALEM INTERNATIONAL

Former Longwood University Men’s Basketball Assistant Coach Adam Williams was named head coach of the Salem International men’s basketball program, Salem Director of Athletics Jamie Shoemaker announced.

Williams, who served as an assistant coach on Jayson Gee’s staff at Longwood in 2015-16, began his tenure at the Division II institution on May 27. Gee and the Longwood staff have initiated a search for their next assistant coach.

The head coach appointment in Salem marks a homecoming for Williams, a Charleston, W.Va., native. His elevation at Salem International is the latest step in his rapid ascent through the collegiate coaching ranks. He began his coaching career at Marshall in 2009 and has worked on staffs at Central Florida and Division II West Virginia Tech.
