Doug Williams Heading Back To Grambling

To coach again... not a misprint...

Williams who was GM of the UFL's newest franchise, the Virginia Destroyers, will be introduced tomorrow. He succeeds Ron Broadway who went to North Carolina A&T after this season.

Williams played for the late Eddie Robinson at Grambling and succeeded him as coach following Robinson's retirement from 1998-2003.

Williams will have the chance to coach his son, D.J., who committed to play next season at the school.

"It is very rare that a father gets to coach his son at the college football level,"
Williams said in a statement released by the UFL. "I went to school there, I coached there, and now I have a great opportunity to coach there again."

Here's Doug digging on the sidelines...
