Golden-Sims, also an academic counselor, was most recently the athletic academic football specialist for the Savannah State football team, where he monitored 100 student-athletes to ensure compliance with the NCAA and MEAC. He also organized the "Freshman Bootcamp" for the newcomers and their life skills development while managing the "Guest Coach" program that honored select faculty for their contributions at home football games. The 2011 graduate of Ohio moved south to Georgia State, where he served as a men's basketball graduate assistant and assistant football academic adviser from 2013-15. Golden-Sims has also held coaching and camp instructor positions at Xavier and Mount Union.
"I just want to thank Mrs. Amato and the Southern Miss Athletic Department for giving me an opportunity to work at this great institution," Golden-Sims said. "I look forward to serving our student-athletes and continuing to learn in this industry."
