CCU Head Coach

Scott Williams

After earning his master’s degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science from Cal Poly in 2015, Scott Williams joined the Mustang women’s soccer staff as a volunteer assistant. He was promoted to assistant coach in 2017 and following a 2021 campaign in which he helped the program capture a share of its first Big West Conference regular season title in eight years, Williams was elevated to associate head coach with the Mustangs in March 2022. Williams is entering his ninth year with the program in 2023 and second as associate head coach.

In addition to his prior duties, Williams is now tasked with scheduling for the Mustangs. Since Williams joined the staff, 21 Cal Poly athletes have received All-Big West accolades and 10 have been named to the Big West All-Freshman Team.

During his playing career with Westmont — which included a run to the quarterfinals of the 2008 NAIA National Championship — Williams was a four-year starter at left back and midfielder. His experience at those positions has led to immediate impacts with the Mustangs.

A native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Williams graduated with his first degree in Kinesiology from Westmont in 2011 prior to grad school. He is married to Cal Poly head women’s tennis coach Ellie Edles Williams and also was an assistant for the Mustang men’s soccer program from 2013-15.
