Coach Jim Bob Williams retires after 27 year career
Steers head baseball coach Jim Bob Williams’ 27-year coaching career came to an end this week. Earlier in the school year, Williams announced his retirement following their baseball season and the end of the school year. The Steers season came to an end after a 2-0 series loss to Stephenville in the 4A Region 1 Quarterfinals.
Williams recently completed his sixth season leading the Steers. His coaching career began in Bryson in 1994. For three years, Williams was a head baseball coach and an assistant with the football team. In his last two years in Bryson, he also coached the girl’s basketball team.
Following his stint in Bryson, Williams moved to Whitewright, located approximately 60 miles northeast of Dallas, where he coached for 11 years. He was the head baseball coach and assistant football coach. From Whitewright, Williams moved on to Bangs, located just west of Brownwood. He spent seven years as head baseball coach and six years as defensive coordinator for the football team.
