>>Adams Steps Down At UNOH
(Lima, OH) -- UNOH introduced Caleb Williams as the new head coach for the Men’s Basketball team at a press conference this morning at the gym, a.k.a. “The Garage” on the UNOH Campus.
After 37 years in coaching Chris Adams is stepping down to fully focus on his role as the Athletic Director at UNOH.
Adams states, “I am ‘retiring’ from coaching so I can give all my attention to the Athletic Director position due to the sheer growth of athletics at UNOH. It has become very difficult to give both positions my full attention, especially during the busy basketball season.”
Adams recently completed his 10th season as the head basketball coach with a 2016-2017 season finishing with an 18-13 record placing 4th in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference. Prior to coaching at UNOH, Adams was the Head Boys basketball Coach at Elida High School (1985-2006) and Head Boys’ Basketball Coach at Springfield Catholic Central High School (1981-1985). With a career collegiate record of 154-153 and a high school record of 380-189, along with multiple Coach of the Year honors, Adams is ready for the next step in his career at the administrative level.
Adams helped bring Athletics back to the University after a 20 year hiatus with 3 sports and 60 athletes. Currently the university supports 14 different collegiate athletic teams comprised of 440 student athletes. With this growth, Adams would like to focus fully on his role as the Athletic Director and manage the day to day operations of Athletics at UNOH.
Caleb Williams is stepping up from assistant to Head Coach after just one season in Lima. Previously, Williams spent two seasons as an Assistant Coach at the University of Findlay (2014-2016). Prior to coaching, Williams played collegiate basketball for Mt. Vernon Nazarene University scoring 986 Career Points and 152 Career Blocked Shots (4th in MVNU Program History). Williams graduated in 2010 from New Bremen High School where he was a 4-year letter winner in track & field, two year letter winner in football, and First Team All MAC in basketball in 2010.
