HOUSTON (AP) - Ricky Williams can't change the past and wouldn't want to even if he could.
The 1998 Heisman Trophy winner and NFL All-Pro is set to take a job coaching running backs at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. The small Catholic school, which is moving to Division I this season, is in the process of finalizing the hire.
His football skills and knowledge are undeniable. But a past including failed drug tests and an abrupt retirement from the Miami Dolphins cast a pall on the stellar career of the hard-running player who piled up more than 10,000 yards rushing in his NFL career.
Williams tells The Associated Press he is ready to coach and believes his career is actually an inspiring story.
