WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Ricky Fried introduced Nick Williams as an assistant coach for the Hoyas on Monday. Williams, who joined the staff in 2014 as a volunteer assistant, came to the Hilltop after serving as an assistant coach at the University of Florida for two years.
"I'm very excited to have Nick work with us full time," said Fried. "His knowledge, experience and ability to relate to his players make him a great fit for our program."
Last season, Williams helped the Hoyas go 11-9 overall and 6-1 in BIG EAST Conference play. Georgetown returned to the BIG EAST Conference Championship Game and earned an NCAA Tournament berth. The Blue & Gray defeated Johns Hopkins, 9-8, in overtime to face third-seeded North Carolina in the second round. The Hoyas fell to the Tar Heels, 10-8.
Georgetown had three Regional All-Americans as well as six players named All-BIG EAST.
At Florida, he was the defensive coordinator for one season. Williams was involved in all day-to-day activities of the team including scouting, practice planning, film and working with the Florida Lacrosse Summer Camp. He was also instrumental in recruiting.
With Williams, the Gators went 18-3 and appeared in the NCAA Tournament. In 2013, he coached the top four award winners in the conference as well as five All-America honorees.
Williams served two seasons (2010-12) as an assistant coach for the Irish women's lacrosse team and was instrumental with overseeing team defense and team goalkeepers, while also assisting with recruiting, scouting opponents and camps and clinics.
In two seasons for Notre Dame, Williams helped compile a 23-15 record as he worked directly with many goalkeepers and defenders who brought in national awards. The Irish were eighth in the country in caused turnovers and 34th in scoring defense in 2012. They finished with a 13-4 record and were eliminated by national champion Northwestern in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
Prior to Notre Dame, he spent a season working with women's lacrosse at his alma mater, Towson, where he was a two-sport athlete in men's lacrosse and football. During his lone season at Towson, Williams helped the Tigers' women's team to a 13-3 overall record, a first-ever at-large selection to the NCAA Tournament and a final ranking of seventh in the nation, the highest ranking in the school's history.
Assisting with both the offense and defense, he helped coach the 2010 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Year, three First Team All-CAA picks, two second team choices and two all-rookie selections.
As a four-year member of the Tigers' men's lacrosse team, Williams played 61 career games and helped Towson to a pair of CAA championships. He scored 29 goals with 22 assists in his career, including a career-best, four-goal game against Cornell in the 2005 NCAA Tournament. Williams graduated in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in sports management.
The Baltimore, Md., native also was a football standout at Towson and is the fifth-leading rusher in school history with 1,985 yards during his career. As a sophomore, Williams rushed for 911 yards in 11 games, including a career-high 169 yards in a win over Delaware. He was a Third Team All-Atlantic 10 selection at running back following his sophomore year.
Additionally, Williams also spent time as the assistant coach of women's lacrosse at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., during the spring of 2009. That previous fall he was the running backs coach at his high school alma mater - Calvert Hall College High school in Baltimore. He resides in Baltimore, Md.
"I can't thank Ricky and the Georgetown community enough for this opportunity," said Williams. "There is not another staff or program out there that I'd want to work for. I am excited to improve on the success we had last year and to continue to work with this amazing team."
