Pershin Williams joins the Lafayette coaching staff after spending the previous season as an assistant coach at the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA).

While with the USMMA, Williams worked under John Krikorian, a former Lafayette assistant coach under Fran O'Hanlon. Prior to arriving at Kings Point, N.Y., Williams served as a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech where he coached with Schwethelm and current Tech assistant and former Lafayette assistant John O'Connor. He served roles in player instruction, recruiting development and basketball operations.

Prior to starting his coaching career, Williams was a standout at North Florida. A transfer point guard from the D-I program, he set single-season school records for assists (161) and steals (69). Williams spent his first three seasons at Columbus State (Ga.). There he helped the squad to a 27-5 record and top-national ranking as the point guard in his junior season.

The Columbus, Ga. native received his bachelor of arts degree in Education of Sports Leadership from North Florida in 2005 and is working toward his masters in Sports Administration at Georgia Tech.
