Doug Williams Sits Down with Melissa Stark to Discuss Current Situation with Grambling State Football
NFL Game Day First at 7:00 AM ET Sunday Morning
Sunday on NFL GameDay First, which begins at 7:00 AM ET, Doug Williams sits down with host Melissa Stark to give his first in-depth interview on the Grambling State University football situation. The Tigers football team forfeited their game against Jackson State on October 19 as part of the student-athletes’ decision to boycott all team activities.
Williams has a strong connection with Grambling having quarterbacked for the Tigers as a student-athlete and held their head coach position on two different occasions – most recently from February, 2011 until September 11, 2013. His firing is believed to be a catalyst for subsequent events which led to the players’ boycott.
The former Super Bowl MVP will also serve as a guest analyst in the entire two-hour NFL Network pregame show.
Other topics to be discussed on NFL GameDay First:
- Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan’s return to Denver.
- Who has the advantage: Cowboys’ Tony Romo and Dez Bryant or Lions’ Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson?
- What is wrong with the New England Patriots offense?
NFL GameDay First leads into NFL GameDay Morning at 9:00 AM ET where host Rich Eisen is joined by analysts Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin, Warren Sapp, and Steve Mariucci.
Also, 25 years after his Super Bowl victory, revisit Williams’ historical journey – through NFL.com’s documentary Skin Deep – as he redefined the quarterback position through overcoming racial stereotypes and adversity: http://www.nfl.com/skindeep
