Earlier today, it was reported by Bruce Feldman that Oregon corners coach Donte' Williams was expected to be hired with the USC Trojans.
30 minutes ago, Williams himself posted a heartfelt on his personal Twitter account to his fellow Oregon coaches, players and fans as to why the change was at a necessary time for him and his famliy:
...My biggest thank you is to the players - thank you for this journey for allowing me to coach you and mentor you at the same time for teaching me things as well. Winning a Pac-12 Championship and Rose Bowl is something I'll never forget. But due to my father's aging/failing health I'm lucky Coach Helton, Coach Orlando and Mr. Bohn are giving me an opportunity to come home and make a decision where I can put my immediate family first and become head of MY household. With that all being said, it's time to take back THE WEST. FIGHT ON. -- Williams on Twitter.
Oregon players took note and wished him the best:
Thank you for everything coach‼️ I got the same number so I'm expecting a text when you get settled in to big dog‼️✊🏽🤞🏽🖤 https://t.co/BYrDQXEpER
