*ESPN.com is reporting that Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams will return to Grambling State for a second run as the program’s head football coach.
Williams, who had been working as general manager of the UFL’s Virginia Destroyers, will be formally introduced on Wednesday, according to the website. He succeeds Ron Broadway, who left Grambling for North Carolina A&T.
Williams, the MVP of Super Bowl XXII, played for the late Eddie Robinson at Grambling and succeeded him as coach following Robinson’s retirement. He led the Tigers from 1998 through 2003.
This time, Williams will have the chance to coach his son, D.J. Williams, who has committed to play next season at Grambling.
“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.”
