Carnell "Cadillac" Williams will serve as Auburn's Interim head football coach after the firing of former head coach Bryan Harsin this morning.
Williams played for Auburn from 2001 to 2004 and helped the Tigers to an undefeated season in 2004 while earning All-America honors that year. As a senior in 2004, Williams led the Tigers to one of the best seasons in program history, winning an SEC Championship and completing a 13-0 season with a win in the Sugar Bowl.
Over his career at Auburn, he amassed 3,831 rushing yards on 741 attempts with 45 touchdowns. He passed the Auburn career record for most running attempts and most touchdowns scored, passing Bo Jackson, while being second in total rushing yards and all-purpose yards. Williams was awarded the 2005 NFL Rookie of the Year and a NFL career that lasted seven years before he got into coaching.
Williams is currently in his third season as the Tiger’s running back coach but will be taking on a bigger role for the rest of the current season.
