WILLIAMSBURG — William & Mary men’s basketball coach Dane Fischer announced the addition of Jason Boardley to the Tribe staff as the program’s director of basketball operations. Boardley comes to Williamsburg with five years of collegiate coaching experience at the Division I, Division II and Junior College levels.
“We are very excited to add Jason Boardley to our staff as the Director of Basketball Operations,” Fischer said. “Jason comes to us with a great combination of experience and ability that will help him make an immediate impact in our program. Jason has had a wide range of responsibilities during his coaching career that have prepared him to transition to the Director of Operations role.”
Most recently, Boardley spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Division II Shepherd University in West Virginia. He helped in leading the Rams to Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Tournament appearances in the program’s first two years in the league. During his tenure, two Shepherd student-athletes were named to the All-PSAC East First Team, four earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors and another was selected as an Academic All-American.
“Jason will bring a great work ethic and communication skills to our program and is extremely committed to developing great relationships with our student-athletes, administration and members of the community. We are thrilled to have him join the Tribe,” Fischer added.
Prior to joining the Rams, Boardley spent a season as a graduate assistant at Division I Mount St. Mary’s University in 2018-19 and another year as an assistant coach at Frederick Community College in 2017-18. He earned his master’s degree in sports management from The Mount during his time in Emmitsburg. In his lone season at Frederick, the Cougars achieved a 22-6 record and finished with a No. 14 national ranking.
Boardley, who is originally from Silver Spring, Md., graduated cum laude in 2017 from High Point University with a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in coaching. During his collegiate career, he interned at Wesleyan Christian Academy for the boys’ basketball team under Keith Gatlin and worked a variety of basketball camps around the DMV area.
