Dr. Carla Williams, a four-year letterwinner for the Georgia Lady Bulldog basketball team from 1985-89 as the former Carla Green, is Deputy Director of Athletics and Senior Woman Administrator for the UGA Athletic Association. In this capacity, she serves as administrator for Georgia's football and women's basketball programs and also has supervisory responsibility for academic support services, business operations, compliance, event management, external operations, facilities, human resources, sports medicine, strength and conditioning, student services and ticketing.

Williams owns the unique experience of competing, coaching and administering at the highest levels of intercollegiate athletics. She was an All-SEC guard on the basketball court, then helped recruit and coach some of the greatest teams in Georgia’s history before moving on to become one of the highest-ranking female administrators in Division I athletics.

Williams began her current stint at the University of Georgia in 2004. She served as Associate Athletic Director, Senior Associate Athletic Director and Executive Associate Athletic Director before her being promoted to her present position.

Prior to returning to Athens, Williams was an Assistant Director of Athletics at Vanderbilt 2000-03 and an Associate Director of Athletics 2003-04. There she oversaw 11 men's and women's sports as well as the CHAMPS/Life Skills program. From 1997-2000, Williams was a graduate assistant for athletic academic support and coordinator for student-athlete development and life skills at Florida State while completing her Ph.D. in Sport Administration in 2000.

A native of LaGrange, Ga., Williams led LaGrange High School to two Georgia Class AAAA state titles before enjoying a stellar collegiate career. She was then a three-year starter for the Lady Bulldogs and earned second-team All-SEC honors as a senior in 1989. Williams finished her career with 1,115 points, which was No. 10 among Georgia's career scoring leaders at that time. She also recorded 425 assists and 285 steals, tallies which rank No. 2 and No. 3 among UGA's career leaders when she graduated.

A “double Dog,” Williams received her Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Master's in Public Administration from Georgia in 1989 and 1991, respectively. She also played professionally in Spain in 1989.

Williams was then an assistant coach on hall of fame coach Andy Landers' staff from 1991-96, including teams which reached the 1995 and 1996 Final Fours, finished as NCAA runner-up in 1996 and won the 1991 and 1996 SEC Championships. Following the 1995-96 season, Williams moved into administration and served as UGA's Assistant Director of Compliance from 1996-97 before continuing her ascent up the administrative ranks at Florida State, Vanderbilt and Georgia.

Williams and her husband, Brian, an Associate Professor of Public Administration & Policy in UGA’s School of Public & International Affairs, have three children: daughters, Carmen (21) and Camryn (17), and a son, Joshua (12). In May 2015, Williams was recognized by the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia as the Athens Woman of Distinction.
