His coaching gig will be more like a part-time job; he had already accepted a position working for the Longhorn Network during the football season. They haven't worked out all the details yet, but he's been told he could handle his coaching duties on his days off from broadcasting.

The schedule will make for a busy fall, but his personality is such that boredom sets in quickly if he's doing just one thing. "Even if it's professional football," he said with a chuckle.

Williams said a recent conversation with a friend during a cross-country drive prompted thoughts about who he was and led him to the realization that he no longer wanted to identify himself as a football player.

"My dream of being a football player had already been fulfilled and now it was time to ask myself what I wanted to do now," he said. "Coaching is one of the things that I think I can do. But if I were only doing coaching it wouldn't be enough for me. I've also found that the more things I can do I'm much more productive and I'm much happier."
