Doug Williams may no longer be the head coach of the Grambling State Tigers.

Could Doug Williams be leaving the legendary GSU Tigers football program? (

KTVE Sports has learned that Williams, who is in his second run at his alma mater, will go into spring drills without a contract approved by the Louisiana State Board.

When Williams was hired last spring, he signed a deal with the president and then athletic director, but that contract was never sent to Baton Rouge for final approval.

Now, the board wants Williams to sign a “revised” deal that will bring it more in line with other schools within the University of Louisiana System.

That new deal is said to be ‘less appealing’ and it remains unsigned.

KTVE Sports has also learned that Williams and his staff have not been paid “performance bonuses” due to them because of the ‘hic-cup’ with the new contract.  Williams guided the Tigers to a SWAC Western Division Title, a SWAC Championship and a win in the Bayou Classic.
