Doug Williams leaves Bucs

The last time Doug Williams left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he went on to win a Super Bowl with the Washington Redskins.

There is no telling where his path will lead him this time, but Williams is leaving the Bucs again, this time after serving as the club’s director of pro personnel.

Williams, who was the MVP of Super Bowl XXII, had made a play to become the head coach at South Florida.

"(General manager) Mark (Dominik) and I have sat down and talked about my future," Williams said in a statement released by the team. "After a lot of thought, I felt that it was the right time for me to look at new options. I wish nothing but the best for the Buccaneers."

Williams rejoined the franchise in 2004 as a pro scout and was promoted to the job he is just leaving to replace Dominik a little more than a year ago when he took Bruce Allen’s post with the team.

"I have tremendous respect for Doug's talents and am very appreciative of his many contributions to this franchise over the years," Dominik said in a statement. "At the end of last season, Doug and I began a conversation regarding his career. Doug concluded that now is the time for him to make the smoothest transition. Like Mike Alstott and Lee Roy Selmon, Doug will stay involved as a representative of the team in the community."
