WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - After five seasons with UNCW, pitching coach Matt Williams is no longer with the program, university officials confirmed Wednesday morning.

Williams was originally hired in 2013 from junior college power Spartanburg Methodist where he served as pitching coach for eight years.

Under Williams' tutelage, three different UNCW players — Alex Royalty, Ryan Foster, and Mat Batts — were named the CAA's pitcher-of-the-year.

A total of 15 pitchers from UNCW have been taken in the MLB draft during Williams' tenure.
