Famed and troubled former NFL player Ricky Williams has a new gig as a college football coach. He will be working at the¬†University of the Incarnate Word (that’s a real university) in San Antonio, TX coaching running backs.

This may be the best move for Williams who just didn’t seem to be able to get his act together in the NFL. Once considered one of the best running backs in the game, Williams was suspended after failing to follow the NFL’s rules regarding substance abuse. He later retired in 2004 admitting his use problems.

While Williams is helping young college running backs perfect their game, I hope he’s also dolling out some good advice about choices and how they can affect a future.
