Special to the Advance

The University of Arkansas at Monticello’s Head Football Coach / Director of Athletics Hud Jackson announced the hiring of Tre’ Williams as the newest coach for the Weevils Football team. Williams comes aboard as the newest linebackers coach for Monticello’s program after spending this past season as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Central Florida.

“Tre’ comes to us with experience as a coach and as a player from the power 5 level,” said Jackson. “He will be a great fit here. He is a detailed person who wants and will build strong relationships with his players! We are happy to welcome him to our family!”

Williams is a former Auburn linebacker who earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors in 2017.

His career included 188 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and a pair of pass breakups.

During the 2020 season, he joined the Thompson High School football staff in Alabaster, Alabama. His role was to coach and develop freshman linebackers, as well as help assist with the varsity team.

He also signed with the Detroit Lions in 2019, had stints with two other NFL teams, and played with the LA Wildcats in the XFL.

He’s a former Alabama prep All-State player from Mobile.

“My wife and I feel very blessed to call Monticello our new home,” said Williams. “We are so excited for this opportunity and look forward to being a catalyst for change. This football program has a bright future and I’m thankful to be a part of what’s ahead. I would like to thank God first, my family and my previous leadership. I wouldn’t be as prepared as I am to serve this team if not for any of these people.”

The UAM football program will be back in action for the 2022 season on Thursday, September 1.

They open up the season in Bethany, Oklahoma as they travel to Southern Nazarene University to face the Crimson Storm. The game is set to begin at 6:00 p.m.
