I do want to thank Coach Williams for his service at TSU. A lot of great and exciting things happened while he was present. Things didn’t work out so now it is time to move on…
In no particular order, here are some coaching candidates that TSU hopefully will receive interest from. Some of the candidates below were mentioned when the job was open two years ago.

Mr. Johnson handles “recruiting, individual skills instruction, on-court coaching and game preparation responsibilities.” These are all things TSU needs to move our program forward.
