Bob Williams (born (1953-07-13)July 13, 1953) is an American college basketball coach and the current head men's basketball coach at the University of California, Santa Barbara.[1] He previously held the same position at the University of California, Davis, winning the NCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship in 1998. Williams is second all time in wins at UCSB, behind only Jerry Pimm, and recorded his 200th victory with the school during the 2010–11 season. The 2009–10 season marked the fourth Big West Regular Season title captured during Williams' tenure at UCSB. It also was the first time in the basketball program's history that the Gauchos won both the Big West Regular Season and Big West Tournament championships in the same year.[2] Williams was also awarded the 2010 Big West Coach of the Year Award, his third.[1] In 2007–08 UCSB set the all time school record for most wins in a season with 23. Williams currently owns the highest Big West Conference winning percentage amongst all active coaches in the league (Big West Conference games only).
