Former Auburn star running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams spent his days on The Plains running over opponents, and now he will attempt to teach others how to do the same in a border state.
Williams will continue his young coaching career as a graduate assistant running backs coach at West Georgia, according to a report by Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman. The former Tigers rusher spent last season as the running backs coach at Henderson State University in Arkansas.
Williams broke Auburn records in rushing touchdowns (45) and rush attempts (741) during his four-year career, and was a key member of the 2004 team that went 13-0.
Williams played seven NFL seasons, the first six with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Williams compiled 4,038 rushing yards on 1,055 carries with 21 touchdowns during his NFL career.
In order to pursue a coaching career, the popular running back returned to Auburn where he obtained a degree in sociology in December 2014.
