Hattiesburg, Miss. - Southern Miss Director of Athletics Richard Giannini has announced the employment of Shaun Williams as the Coordinator for Athletic Sales, effective immediately.
"We are excited that Shaun has decided to join our external staff," Herring said. "He brings a unique perspective to the position having been a collegiate baseball player and having spent time at a small university. His experience, enthusiasm and desire will take him far in his career and will certainly be an asset to Southern Miss."
He replaces Brandon Bang, who left the department at the end of April to pursue other opportunities. This position serves in a variety of marketing and external duties, but is primarily responsible for the day-to-day sales of season and group tickets for a number of sports teams.
Williams comes to Southern Miss after most recently completing a one-year full-time athletics internship within external Affairs at The University of Evansville, where he was in integral part of its marketing, ticket operations, donor relations and event management. He graduated from Evansville with a bachelor's degree in sports studies in 2004, where he was a starting pitcher on the Purple Aces baseball team. Williams also holds a master's degree in sports administration from Ball State University.
