Alan Williams Resigns as Bears' Defensive Coordinator
Alan Williams resigns as Chicago Bears' defensive coordinator, citing health and family as reasons for his departure.
Williams was absent during the Bears' recent game against the Buccaneers due to personal issues.
Williams officially resigns after a year and a half with the Bears, expressing gratitude and a desire to prioritize his health and family.
Williams, with over three decades of coaching experience, was part of the Colts' coaching staff that won Super Bowl XLI.
Despite stepping down, Williams looks forward to returning to coaching after addressing his health.
Matt Eberflus, the Bears' head coach, takes on defensive play-calling duties for now.
Eberflus believes the experienced defense can perform well even without a defensive coordinator.
The Bears face a tough season start, with criticism directed at players and coaching staff.
The Bears aim to break their 12-game losing streak, currently the longest in the NFL, against defending champions in their next game.
