Jordan Williams named men’s lacrosse coach at Penn College

Jordan Williams was named men’s lacrosse coach at Penn College, it was announced Monday. Williams is Penn College’s first full-time lacrosse coach and will lead the program in its inaugural NCAA Division III season in 2021.

Williams spent the previous five seasons as an assistant coach at Ohio Wesleyan, Chatham University, and Lourdes University.

“Jordan was just outstanding during the entire interview process and we were really impressed with his energy, passion, and attention to detail,” Penn College Director of Athletics John Vandevere said. “We have added another great coach to our already stellar coaching staff and we cannot wait to see Jordan’s impact on our department and our men’s lacrosse program.”

Williams earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Aurora University (Ill.) where he was a member of the men’s lacrosse team and a four-time scholar-athlete selection. He obtained his Master of Business Administration from Lourdes University (Ohio) in 2017 and was a graduate assistant coach during his two years in Sylvania.

Following his time at Lourdes, Williams spent a season as the offensive coordinator at Chatham, and helped guide the team to a 7-8 season. Williams joined the coaching staff at Ohio Wesleyan in 2018 where he was responsible for the goalies, man-up offense, and the recruiting coordinator. During his two seasons in Delaware, Ohio the Bishops went 13-11, had four offensive all-American and all-region selections, and one conference player of the year.
