A University of South Dakota assistant football coach will spend part of the summer at the Chicago Bears' training camp.
Coyote outside linebackers coach Marquice Williams is one of five selected for a Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship.
The program has mentored more than 1,500 minority coaches since it was established in 1987, including current NFL head coaches Marvin Lewis of the Bengals, Leslie Frazier of the Vikings and Mike Tomlin of the Steelers. Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith are also alums.
Williams says it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop as a coach and learn as much as he can from some of the best in the game. He says he's looking forward to taking what he learns and bringing it back to USD to share with the Coyotes.
