Megan Williams, Goucher’s all-time-winningest field hockey coach, has resigned to take a position in Rhode Island, Goucher announced Friday.
Williams, who has been the Gophers’ coach for the past six seasons, will become the director of athletics at the Rocky Hill School in Warwick, R.I, in July. Her resignation from Goucher, where she has also served as the assistant athletic director and compliance coordinator for the athletic department, is effective March 31.
"It certainly is bittersweet to be leaving Goucher but I am very confident that the field hockey program is poised to continue its success both on and off the field," Williams said in a statement. "There is an incredibly strong foundation and culture to be able to continue building upon. I will remain one of the biggest fans of this program and of the players that I am leaving behind."
The field hockey team won 40 games during Williams’ tenure, nearly double the number of games the Gophers had won the six seasons before her arrival. She was named the 2016 Landmark Coach of the Year and led Goucher to its first Landmark Conference playoffs that year.
Goucher said in its announcement that it has begun a national search for a new coach.
