Amy Williams is in her second season as an assistant coach for the Golden Hurricane.

In her first season at Tulsa, Williams helped the Golden Hurricane to a 26-6 overall record, Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Williams played a large role in helping former guard/forward Megan Moody earn all-C-USA second team honors.

Williams is no stranger to the Sooner State. She spent four seasons as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for Oklahoma State.

During her stint in Stillwater, Williams was responsible for back-to-back top-50 recruiting classes during the 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons. The 2003-04 group ranked No. 19 in the nation according to the All-Star Girl's Report. Among that year's recruiting class was Nina Stone, who was named the 2003-04 Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Year. For her recruiting efforts, Williams was named the 11th-best recruiting coordinator to impact their program by the All-Star Girl's Report.

Prior to her arrival in Stillwater, Williams worked as an assistant coach under former OSU assistant coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair at Texas-San Antonio. While at UTSA, Williams was involved in all facets of the program including recruiting, conditioning and academics.

Before that, Williams worked as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, where she served from January of 1999 until the summer of 2000.

As a student-athlete at Nebraska, Williams was a four-year letterwinner from 1994-98 under coaches Angela Beck and Paul Sanderford. She was an Academic All-Big 12 selection in 1997 and 1998 and was named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll in 1996 and 1997.

A native of Spearfish, South Dakota, Williams received her master's degree in sports administration from UNK in 2002, and earned her bachelor's of science degree in biology and mathematics from Nebraska in 1998.
