SAN ANTONIO -

Ricky Williams is the new running backs coach at the University of the Incarnate Word, bringing years of knowledge of the game to the small Catholic school looking to build its program.
    
Incarnate Word coach Larry Kennan called Williams "one of the biggest names in Texas football" and says he'll be a boost to his team.
    
The 1998 Heisman Trophy winner and NFL All-Pro who led the league in rushing in 2002 is looking forward to getting back on the football field a year after his retirement from the NFL.
    
He wants to help his players: "be much better than they think they can be." Williams will work with the team part time because he had already accepted a position working for the Longhorn Network during the football season.
