Former Wright State women’s basketball coach Bridgett Williams will take over the head coach position for the Fairborn High School girls’ varsity team.

The announcement was made Thursday, according to Dayton Daily News staff writer Marc Pendleton.

Williams, who coached WSU’s women’s basketball team from 2001 to 2010 before being replaced by current head coach Mike Bradbury, will seek to continue the high standards set by former Skyhawks coach Steve Hannaford.

From 2009-2012, the Fairborn’s girls’ team compiled a record of 70-12, won three of the last four Greater Western Ohio Conference South Division titles and won three consecutive Division I sectional titles. Hannaford ended his coaching career at Fairborn with a 104-31 record, good for a .770 win percentage.

Williams was named Horizon League co-coach of the year in 2007-08 and led the Raiders to a 109-155 record during her nine seasons on the sidelines. Before taking the job at WSU, Williams was the head coach at Chicago State.
