When you learn from a guy like Nick Saban, you gain some first-hand knowledge in how to be a coach, whether that’s your ultimate goal or not.
That was certainly the case for former Alabama LB Chavis Williams, who now has a head coaching job of his own.
Per a report from AL.com, Williams will be the head coach at Carbon Hill High School in Alabama after serving as an assistant the past four years. Williams credited Saban’s attention to detail for preparing him to be a coach:
“The thing I learned from Coach Saban is you can’t be overwhelmed and you’ve got to have a plan, whatever you want to call it, The Process, but it’s step-by-step and everything is laid out,” Williams said. “And it’s laid our clearly. Put it up on the walls. Everybody understands the job they’ve got to do, and they understand they’ve got to do their job.”
Williams was part of Saban’s first Alabama class in 2007. He didn’t see much action during his career, recording 17 tackles and one sack while playing mostly on special teams.
