SAN ANTONIO -- University of the Incarnate Word head football Coach Larry Kennan announced that long-time NFL star and former Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams has been hired as an assistant coach.

Williams joins a UIW program that is transitioning from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division I and the Southland Conference beginning this season. The Cardinals begin their fifth season on the field on Aug. 29 at No. 7-ranked Central Arkansas.

“We are elated and thrilled to have such a fabulous person join our coaching staff,” Kennan said. “Having Ricky Williams join our program gives us instant credibility in the world of football.”

Williams was a first-round draft pick out of the University of Texas at Austin in 1999 for the New Orleans Saints. He played a total of 11 seasons in the NFL for the Saints, Miami Dolphins, and Baltimore Ravens before retiring after the 2011 season. He finished his career with 10,009 yards rushing and five 1,000-yard seasons.

During his time at Texas, Williams set the NCAA career rushing record and was the 1998 Heisman Trophy winner. He won the Doak Walker Award twice, the Jim Brown Trophy twice, the Walter Camp Award, and the Maxwell Award. He finished his four-year career with 6,279 yards rushing, 927 yards receiving, and 75 total touchdowns.

Williams will be an offensive coach for the Cardinals specifically working with the young running backs and any others who might need his help.
