The Louisiana sports world is happy about this very happy and exciting news.

Doug Williams is returning to Grambling State for a second run as the program’s coach. Williams, who had been working as general manager of the UFL’s Virginia Destroyers, will be formally introduced on Wednesday. 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.”
