Doug Williams ready for second stint at Grambling

GRAMBLING, La. - If Doug Williams' second time around as head coach at Grambling State is as successful as his first stint, the Tigers should be in good shape.

As the successor to Eddie Robinson, the former Tigers' All-America quarterback and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player helped his alma mater dominate the Southwestern Athletic Conference during the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Now, after several years in an NFL front office, Williams is back.

If the Tigers fulfill preseason predictions of winning a Western Division title in the SWAC, they'll have to do so with an untested quarterback and without the team's top two rushers of the past four years.

On defense, though, Grambling is expected to be among the best in the conference.
