Minnesota Vikings pro Kevin Williams has been named new defensive coach for Little Rock Central’s football team, the school announced on Thursday. The team hopes six-time Pro Bowl Williams’ coaching “will make a positive difference with our defensive front line using his past college/NFL experience.”
Williams graduated from Fordyce High School in 1998, where many of his individual football records still stand. He majored in general studies and earned his degree in the spring of 2003 from Oklahoma State. Williams was a mainstay on the Oklahoma State Cowboys football team’s defensive front. He was a part of the team that improved from 3-8 with 1 win in the conference in 2000 to an 8-5 overall record with a 5-3 conference mark in 2002. The Cowboys’ Houston Bowl appearance in 2002 was only the second time in 14 years that OSU made it to a bowl game.
Williams was on the Minnesota Vikings team from 2003 to 2013, then joined the Seattle Seahawks in 2014. He most recently played for the New Orleans Saints, in 2015. Williams is part of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team and is listed as one of the, “50 Greatest Vikings.”
