GRAMBLING, La. (AP) — Grambling State's Doug Williams has been accustomed to winning as a player and coach, and is eager to prove his 1-10 campaign a year ago was an anomaly.
Hope starts with the fact that Grambling, which won the Southwestern Athletic Conference as recently as 2011, lost five games by seven or fewer points.
The coach will rely on his son, D.J. Williams, to lead the offense after sharing quarterback duties last season, when the Tigers averaged only 18.2 points per game.
Williams also hopes the return of Dennis "Dirt" Winston as defensive coordinator tightens up that side of scrimmage.
Williams says there's no doubt in his mind his team will "get back to being Grambling."
Predicted finish: Fifth in the SWAC West Division.
