Shammond Williams Joins Tulane Staff
Former UNC standout Shammond Williams already epitomizes a basketball lifer. Following a Tar Heels career during which he went to three Final Fours and set school records for 3-pointers made in a game (8), season (95) and career (233), he played professionally for 13 seasons in six different countries.
Since retiring as a player in 2011, Williams has made a smooth transition to the college coaching ranks. After spending last year at Furman, the 38-year-old was hired at Tulane on Wednesday.
“He is a talented teacher of the game who is driven to help our student-athletes develop on and off the floor and will make a tremendous impact in our player development,” said Green Wave head coach Ed Conroy in a press release. “I am eager to witness the relationships Shammond is able to cultivate within our program and on the recruiting trail while sharing all his basketball and life experiences.”
Williams certainly has a lot of those experiences to share. Shammond Williams profile
