Former Auburn and Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Cadillac Williams is one of the best running backs to ever suit up for either of those teams. His career on the field may be over, but his career on the sideline is just getting started.
FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman reported that Williams will be taking an assistant coaching job at Division II football power West Georgia for the 2016 season. He will be a graduate assistant and will likely help with the running backs.
The Wolves have been one of the better teams in Division II the last few years as third-year head coach Will Hall has helped them to two straight Division II Semifinals appearances and a Gulf South Conference championship last season. Bringing on a great football mind like Williams will be huge for them.
During his career with the Tigers, Cadillac Williams racked up over 3,800 yards and 45 touchdowns on the ground. He translated that into success in the NFL, rushing for 3,677 yards and 20 touchdowns in six years with the Buccaneers, including over 1,100 in his rookie season.
If there is one player that I would love having teach up my running backs, Williams would certainly be one of my first choices.
