Livingstone has promoted football offensive coordinator Daryl Williams to head coach.


Williams replaces Elvin James, who was fired after three seasons and a 3-28 record, including 2-8 in 2012.


“I felt it was imperative we make a coaching change to turn around our football program,” Livingstone Athletics Director Andre Springs said in a statement. “We appreciate the work coach James did during his tenure; however, we need to be much more competitive on the gridiron than we have been in recent years. Coach Williams has a solid background in coaching, including stints at Texas Southern University and Alabama State University. We feel he’s the right man to get Livingstone’s football program on the right track at this time.”


Williams was associate head coach and quarterback coach at Texas Southern from 2007-2011. During the 2010 season, Texas Southern won the SWAC championship.
From 2005-07, Williams was the director of football operations at Alabama State. Prior to that, Williams was co-offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for Alabama State from 2001-05. Before that, Williams spent six years coaching football at high schools in Memphis, Tenn.


The Blue Bears went 2-5 in the CIAA and finished last in the South Division but produced the league’s offensive rookie of the year in quarterback Drew Powell, who completed 197 of 349 passes for 2,322 yards and 18 touchdowns.
