The Steelers have hired North Carolina Central offensive line coach Isaac Williams as their new assistant offensive line coach, the team announced Tuesday.
Williams has previously worked at North Carolina Central, Morgan State, and Northern Colorado, where he coached the offensive line of each respective team. At Morgan State, he also was the run game coordinator and helped coach tight ends. With six seasons of experience under his belt, Williams is a relatively new coach on the landscape.
He will be under the tutelage of new Steelers offensive line coach Pat Meyer, who the Steelers recently hired after he was let go from the Panthers. Williams will be the third assistant offensive line coach in as many seasons, following Chris Morgan and Adrian Klemm.
A former offensive lineman at Alcorn State from 2008 to 2011, Williams was a two-time all-conference selection. Williams was a four-year starter under Earnest Collins Jr. while playing at Alcorn State and earning a captainship three years in a row.
Prior to coaching at the college level, Williams coached the defensive line at Clinton High School and Sumner Hill Jr. High School in Mississippi. He jumped up to coach a Division III school in Millsaps College, coaching offensive line.
