Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, who is as credible as you can possibly get, in terms of knowing about coaching, said he thinks former Heisman Trophy winning running back Ricky Williams, the former NCAA rushing leader from the University of Texas, can succeed in the college coaching game, during Wednesday’s SEC media teleconference.

“I think Ricky Williams would be a great coach,” Saban said according to AL.com. “I know that people talk about Ricky Williams for a lot of different reasons, but as a player to coach, the guy was as good a player as you could ever have on the field to coach. He played hard every down. He was a great competitor.”

Saban coached Williams during his two years as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2005 and 2006.

Williams, who was drafted in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints, is currently the running backs coach for the University of the Incarnate Word,  in San Antonio, Texas.
