Michael Williams named new Head Football Coach
Head of School Michael D. White has promoted Michael Williams to the position of head football coach at Westbury Christian School.
Coach Williams has served as the defensive coordinator for the school’s Wildcat football program, as well as a secondary physical education and health teacher, since August 2014. In 2018, he also assumed lead responsibility for the strength and conditioning program that serves all in-season student-athletes. In addition, Coach Williams has also worked with the varsity and junior varsity girls basketball and middle school boys basketball teams during his time at WCS.
“The Wildcat football program has been blessed by the Christ-like leadership of several men throughout its 20-year history, and, on behalf of all Wildcat fans, I want to thank Mark Krimm for leading our football program as head coach for the past five seasons,” White said. “I am excited about the possibilities for our student-athletes individually and the football program as a whole as Coach Williams takes up the mantle and builds upon that ‘firm foundation’ moving forward.”
Prior to coming to WCS in August 2014, Williams was a pre-kindergarten teacher at Yellowstone Academy for four years, where he also served as head coach for the middle school boys basketball team. He has also worked as a sports performance coach for Parisi Speed School and Velocity Sports and Performance, and he has evaluated football talent around the Houston area as an assistant coach with Nike Football’s “The Opening” in Houston.
Coach Williams was awarded the WCS Upper School Teacher of the Nine Weeks award in October 2018, and he was the Yellowstone Academy Coach of the Year in 2012.
Williams holds a Bachelor of Arts in Family and Consumer Science from Southern University and A&M College, where he was captain of the football team and a three-time All-Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) defensive back, and a Master of Arts in Education in curriculum and instruction from Ashford University.
Coach Williams and his wife Brandy Williams have three children, a son and two daughters.
