Mansfield High has introduced Coach Reginald Williams, a new addition to the Wolverine basketball team. The school said, “We are delighted to welcome Coach Reginald Williams, originally from Shreveport, La. Coach Williams is a Spring 2016 graduate of Northwestern State University.
His impressive coaching career started at Green Oaks, where he spent two years as an assistant under Coach Jessica Elie (2017-2019). This was followed by a one-year stint at Huntington under Coach Mac Jones (2020-2021), during which he also served as a two-year football assistant under Coach Stephen Dennis (2019-2021).
His most recent position was a two-year tenure at Southwood under Coach Brandon Gultery (2021-2023). His guidance was instrumental in leading the Cowboys at Southwood to a 14-0 undefeated district championship in the 22-23 season and a spot in the LHSAA Select Division I state playoff quarterfinals.
Alongside his school coaching duties, Coach Williams has been a three-year travel basketball assistant coach with the O.W.E. (Out Work Everybody) travel basketball club since 2021. Under his tutelage, 21 players have accepted offers to play at the collegiate or post-grad level.
