It wasn't that long ago when Terence Williams was the head football coach at Donaldsonville High.

Williams left Ascension Parish briefly to coach at Redemptorist, but now his role has changed. He will no longer be prowling the sidelines on Friday nights or tirelessly working on gameplans throughout the week.

Recently, Williams stepped away from coaching to become the new director of the Louisiana High School Coaches Association.

He's no stranger to the LHSCA. He served as president in the past. He has also served on the Louisiana High School Athletic Association's executive committee.

Williams' stint in Ascension was from 2009-12 when he served as the head coach at Donaldsonville for four years.

In those four seasons, the Tigers went 25-19 and made the playoffs three times.

During the summer of 2013, Williams decided to take the vacant coaching position at Redemptorist.

He coached the Wolves for two seasons until the school was forced to shut down this year.

Throughout his coaching career, Williams has also made stops at Leesville High and Jackson High. He was an assistant coach at both Christian Life and University High.

Coincidently, Williams is the second straight former Ascension parish coach to become the LHSCA director.

Former longtime St. Amant basketball coach Gary Duhe held the position for two years until getting the itch to get back into coaching just recently.

Duhe resigned his position to become the head basketball coach at Live Oak.
