Just about 24 hours after news broke that his father had been fired as head coach, it looks like Doug Williams, Jr. will start at quarterback for Grambling. Interim head coach George Rawlings told the Monroe News-Star that D.J. Williams will remain the starter for Saturday’s Missouri Classic game against Lincoln (MO).
“I haven’t seen any reason for him to lose his job,” Ragsdale said. “When you are quarterback, you touch the ball every time. But no one sees the guys that drop the ball. No one sees him get sacked. No one sees the pressure he gets before he throws the ball. They are just watching him.”
Through two games, Williams has thrown for just 205 yards and one touchdown and completed only 38 percent of his passes.
