Volleyball Announces Assistant Coach Hire

Bears add extensive coaching experience to strengthen staff

Jason Williams was promoted to full-time assistant coach in April of 2016, promoted from a volunteer assistant role in 2015.

Williams brings elite-level training talent and serves as the team's training coordinator, helping plan and run practices and game preparations.

Williams brought National Championship experience, as well as being a highly successful coach at the junior club level in Texas. Williams was instrumental in helping to get Texas junior club volleyball on the map, which many now consider a hot bed for prospective recruits. He is known for training well-prepared teams, carrying a track record of successful game management strategies.

In the 10 years prior to joining Baylor, Williams' club teams finished top 20 in the nation with eight of those teams finishing in the top 10. In 2014, Williams' 16s team won the AAU National Championship and the JVA World Challenge. He led three teams to the finals of the USA Junior National Championships in the open division, as well as two third place and three fifth-place finishes.

Williams also had four teams finish in the top 10 of the final year-end national rankings on PrepVolleyball.com. Those teams would go on to win several national qualifiers, including Lonestar, as well as Tour of Texas championships.

Williams was a four-sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball, and track) at Plano East Senior High in Plano, Texas. He played two years of football at Austin College before transferring out when he realized that his passion was volleyball, where he went on to have a successful beach career. Primarily playing setter, he had success playing on men's teams that competed at the USAV Open Championships.

Williams' wife, the former Cory Sivertson, also a setter, is the only volleyball player inducted into the Baylor Hall of Fame, ending her career holding 18 Baylor records, many of which still stand today. Williams credits his successes on the volleyball court to Cory's success, knowledge, and influence. Jason and Cory have two children, Callie and Barrett. Entering her freshman season, Callie plays volleyball for the University of Tennessee.
