Itawamba Community College head football coach Jon Williams has resigned to join the staff at Southern Miss.

The move was first reported by Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com and was confirmed Monday afternoon by ICC officials.

Williams will join Todd Monken’s staff as an assistant head coach and director of player personel – a key position in directing the Golden Eagles’ recruiting efforts. Williams replaces Steve Buckley, who resigned from the position last week.

A native of Panama City, Fla., Williams was on the ICC staff for seven seasons, the last four as head coach. He had a record of 21-16, and his 2013 team went 6-4 and reached the MACJC playoffs – the school’s first postseason action since 2007.

His previous experience included three seasons as head coach at Simpson Academy, where he compiled a 21-3 record.
