USC Salkehatchie Athletics Director Jane Brewer announced today that Men’s Basketball Coach Jake Williams has accepted the position of Head Coach at Dodge City Community College in Kansas effective April 1.
“This is very bittersweet for Salk. Coach Williams was very successful at Salk for the entire 3 years he was here. This season his team set records for season wins, region wins and won the first ever Men’s Basketball Tourney Championship for Region 10. They qualified as a Sweet 16 automatic qualifier for the National Tournament which subsequently was canceled due to COVID-19. Coach Williams was also named Region 10 Coach of the Year. Salk will surely miss him and we are so appreciative of all his hard work on behalf of our program,” Brewer said.
“At the same time we are very happy for Coach Williams as this is a big move up career wise for him. And we are very proud to have been a part of his career journey. Coach Williams leaves the USC Salk men’s basketball program in excellent shape and primed for even further future successes.”
The search process for a head men’s basketball coach will begin immediately.
