About Willie Washington
Athletic Director of Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. Coach Washington spent twelve years as the Head Men’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director at Allen University. After building a successful basketball program at Allen University it was time to turn his attention to revamping the Benedict College program.
Under his leadership, the Tigers were the scourge of the EIAC, winning six Commissioner’s Cups, the hallmark of excellence for the school with the best athletic program. Benedict won six out of seven during their stay in the EIAC since the inauguration of the award.
Washington was named the 1999 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Southeast Region Athletic Director of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. During his tenure as basketball coach, the Benedict College team never had a losing season.

He was named the winner of eight EIAC Coach of the Year awards and was inducted into the EIAC Hall of Fame in 1998.
