Former Yale Coach Takes Over UTEP Safeties


It was announced today that former Yale head coach Tom Williams will be the new safeties coach for the Miners, replacing Al Simmons who left to be the co-defensive coordinator at Colorado St. Williams spent three seasons as head coach of Yale, compiling a 16-14 overall record, including going 7-3 in 2010. However, he was forced to resign in December after it was found that he "overstated his status as a Rhodes Scholarship candidate" while a student at Stanford in the early 1990's. In addition to being the head man at Yale, Williams has spent time as an assistant at Stanford, Hawaii, Washington, San Jose St., and was also an assistant for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
