Welcome to the U, coach Travis Williams!

Miami has a new linebacker coach. Head coach Manny Diaz announced the hiring of Travis Williams as linebacker coach on Monday.

“We are thrilled to welcome Travis and his family to Miami,” coach Diaz said in a prepared statement. “He has had tremendous success both playing and coaching the linebacker position and I’m excited about the knowledge and passion he will bring to our linebackers group.”

Coach Williams is an alum of Auburn University, played for the Tigers and has been their linebackers coach since 2016.  He played for the Atlanta Falcons for two years before starting his coaching career. Coach Williams also played and coached with coach TRob at Auburn.

Coach Williams is also known as an excellent recruiter, which should be another boost for Miami when added to coach TRob and coach DeMarcus Van Dyke.
