Former Spencer High standout Donovan Williams was named an assistant basketball coach at Princeton on Tuesday.
Williams' father George is the head coach at Columbus High and his brother Pershin is the head coach at Hardaway.
Williams had been an assistant coach at Lafayette College for the past five seasons. Lafayette won the Patriots League three times and made four NCAA tournament appearances in those five years.
"I'm so pleased that Donovan is joining our team," Princeton coach Mitch Henderson said in a news release from the school. "He is an experienced recruiter, he's very hard-working and he comes from a family of coaching and teaching. He is a terrific addition here and I'm glad to welcome him to Princeton."
Never miss a local story.
Williams played for his father at Spencer High from 2001-04. He went to play at Park University, where he was a two-year starter. He was a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech and made a brief stop of Holy Family University before joining Lafayette.
"I'm excited to be part of a program with such a rich basketball tradition here at Princeton University," Williams said. "Coach Henderson and his staff have been tremendous in welcoming me to the Princeton family. His enthusiasm and vision truly excites me and I look forward to joining the culture that he has established."
