Williams says that Coughlan will join as chief engineer in June as part of an initiative to boost a team that won the last of its nine constructors titles in 1997 and has yet to pick up a point from three races in this season's championship.
Coughlan was fired as McLaren chief designer and banned for two years after a 780-page technical dossier on Ferrari cars was found at his home.
He has been working for NASCAR competitor Michael Waltrip Racing.
Team principal Frank Williams says Coughlan ``profoundly regrets'' his conduct and ``is now determined to prove himself again.''
