Doug Williams released from coaching position at Grambling

Posted: Updated:

(KTBS) - Doug Williams will no longer serve as football coach of Grambling State University.

Initially, Williams was named head football coach at Grambling State University in 1998. He led the Tigers to three consecutive Southwestern Athletic Conference titles from 2000-2002, before leaving to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a personnel executive.

Williams held several other positions in the interim but returned for a second stint as the head football coach of Grambling State University in February 2011.

Williams also had a successful career in the NFL. According to his website, he is best known for his MVP performance in Super Bowl XXII against the Denver Broncos. He is, to date, the only African American quarterback who has won the Super Bowl.

The decision to release Williams from his position at Grambling was confirmed Wednesday by university officials. No word yet on a replacement.
