After four seasons as a starter at safety for Statesmen (2002-2005), Golding began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Delta State University in 2006.
Golding has coached five All-Americans in his coaching tenure, beginning with Michael Eubanks (LB/2006) at Tusculum (Tenn.) College. He has coached All-Americans Monterio James (CB/2006), Garrett Williams (SS/2010), and Dominique Davenport (CB/2011).
Under head coach Frankie DeBusk, Golding spent two years as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach at Tusculum College, which is a member of the South Atlantic Conference (SAC). Golding was the defensive backs coach in 2007 before being named defensive coordinator in 2008.
Under Golding's guidance, the college's Pioneers developed into an explosive and record-breaking defensive squad. In 2007, Tusculum College set a new school record with 14 interceptions. In 2008, Tusculum College led the SAC in sacks and forced turnovers to an NCAA Division II playoff trip.
In 2010, during Golding's first year back at Delta State's Statesmen advanced to the NCAA DII National Championship game with an 11–4 overall record and a 6–2 record in the Gulf South Conference. They won their third Gulf South Conference title in four years. However, in the championship game, Delta State University was defeated by Minnesota-Duluth, 20–17, on a last-second game-winning field goal.
Golding then joined as the defensive coordinator at Southeastern Louisiana for two seasons. In his final season, Southeastern Louisiana's Lions won a program-record 11 games, including a perfect 7–0 record in Southland Conference play on their way to their first league title since 1961. In their first-ever appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs, Southeastern Louisiana advanced to the quarterfinals, and his defense led the Southland in both total and scoring defense.
