Donovan Williams is in his fifth season at Lafayette under head coach Fran O'Hanlon. During his tenure at Lafayete, the Leopards have made two appearances in the Patriot League Championship, in 2010-11 and more recently in 2012-13.

Williams came to College Hill from Holy Family University in Philadelphia where he was an assistant coach under assistant coach John O'Connor. Prior to Holy Family, Williams served as a graduate assistant for the Georgia Tech men's basketball program from August 2008 to May 2010. While there, he worked alongside O'Connor, who was an assistant at Georgia Tech at the time, and under Tech head coach Paul Hewitt. As a member of the Yellow Jackets' staff, Williams handled film exchange and administrative duties and assisted with individual instruction.

Williams earned his bachelor of arts degree in Business Administration from Park University near Kansas City, Mo. in 2008. He played four seasons of varsity basketball and was a two-year starter. In 2007, he helped lead his squad to a 25-7 record, an NAIA National Tournament Sweet 16 appearance and an NAIA Independent Conference championship team.

The native of Columbus, Ga. earned his master's degree in Sports Administration from Georgia State University in 2010.

The Williams name is a well-known in coaching, as Williams' father, George, was a high school coach for more than 30 years in Georgia and Alabama. Williams' brother, Pershin, was an assistant at Lafayette under O'Hanlon in 2008-09, before taking an assistant coaching job at Georgia Southern University prior to the 2009-10 season.
