Doug Williams is returning to Grambling and will coach the Tigers football team.
Grambling spokeswoman Debra Johnson said Monday that the school is “in the process of making the announcement” that Williams would be the university’s next head coach.
Williams was the general manager of UFL’s Virginia franchise in 2010. The former Grambling quarterback was the MVP of Super Bowl XXII with the Washington Redskins.
He later succeeded Eddie Robinson as coach at his alma mater, winning three straight Southwestern Athletic Conference titles from 1998-2003.
The 55-year-old Williams, a native of Zachary, La., replaces Rod Broadway, who resigned earlier this month to become head coach at North Carolina A&T.
Williams will coach his son D.J., who signed with Grambling this year.
