Colgate volunteer assistant Borges lands gig as new Williams assistant coach

Williams has named Dana Borges as the men’s team’s new assistant coach.

Borges replaces Mike Monti, who moved up when Williams head coach Bill Kangas went on a sabbatical.

“I’m extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to be at Williams,” Borges told the Berkshire Eagle. “It’s Williams, right? It’s a place of high character, great tradition. It’s somewhere I’m really excited to be a part of.”

“He was the guy that stood out among the others,” added Monti. “We had a really nice pool, and we were very fortunate to have that.”

Borges played at Division II Stonehill from 2009 to 2013 and was a semifinalist for the Joe Concannon Award.

After college, he coached at Stonehill for two years before being named the volunteer assistant coach at Colgate late last summer.

“Coming from Colgate, I liked that kind of small-town, tight-knit community where everybody cares for each other, everybody’s pushing for each other,” Borges said in the Eagle. “I got a strong sense of that, just meeting with different individuals, how much everybody is working together for that common goal — help the kids, help each other to be better people and accomplish things every day.”
