CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (CLARKSVILLENOW) – A former contract coach with Rossview High School’s basketball team has been charged with doping a student athlete with steroids.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office investigators arrested Roger Williams, 52, on Monday and charged him with anabolic steroids – prohibitive acts.

Investigators received an anonymous tip that Williams was providing and injecting a Clarksville-Montgomery County School System student with an anabolic steroid as part of strength and conditioning training, according to a news release from MCSO spokeswoman Sandra Brandon.

After an extensive investigation, the findings were presented to the grand jury, which issued a sealed indictment for Williams’ arrest.

Williams was a contractor, not an employee, for CMCSS, schools spokesman Anthony Johnson said Tuesday.

“He was contracted in August 2019 for professional services to plan, coordinate, implement and oversee a strength and conditioning program for the Rossview High boys basketball team,” Johnson said. “That contract was terminated on Dec. 20, 2019.”

If anyone is aware of other possible victims or has information on this crime, please contact Investigator Angela Christian at 931-648-0611, ext. 13407.
