Trent Miles adds J.D. Williams to coaching staff

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

Trent Miles has named J.D. Williams as Georgia State's new defensive backs coach.

Trent Miles named another member of the 2013 Georgia State Panthers coaching staff on Monday, as the new head coach announced that J.D. Williams will serve as the team's defensive backs coach next season.

Williams was named UNLV's defensive coordinator in 2012, and spent three seasons with the Rebels, originally serving as UNLV's assistant head coach and defensive backs coach.

In 1990, Williams was selected in the first round of the NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. Williams also played for the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers before retiring at the end of the 1996 season.

Williams' coaching career began in 1998, when he served as Cal Poly's defensive backs coach. Since then, Williams has coached at San Jose State, Fresno State, California, Washington, Utah and UNLV.

Williams joins a staff that features Jesse Minter (defensive coordinator), P.J. Volker (linebackers), Shannon Jackson (defensive line), and Harold Etheridge (offensive line).

Miles has yet to name an offensive coordinator, nor has he named a quarterback, running back or wide receiver coach.
