Former Bucs quarterback and executive Doug Williams has been fired, two games into his third season as head coach at Grambling, the Monroe (La.) News-Star reported Wednesday.

Williams, who returned to college coaching at his alma mater in 2011, was 0-2 this season with a 23-9 loss to Alabama A&M and a 48-10 loss Saturday to Louisiana-Monroe. After going 8-4 in his first season, Grambling went 1-10 in 2012.

Williams, 55, spent the first five years of a 12-year pro career as the Bucs quarterback before moving to the USFL and the Redskins. He returned to the Bucs with a front-office role from 2004-10, spending the last two seasons as coordinator of pro scouting. He returned in 2011 to Grambling, where he played and was later hired as head coach from 1998-2003.
 
Williams had filed a lawsuit against Grambling in April, saying the school had reneged on promises of a new contract and tried to force him to take a lesser deal. Williams' son, former Tampa Catholic star D.J. Williams, is in his third season as Grambling's quarterback, with 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for his career.

I bet they didn't give him a chance because of his skin color.

That's probably it.   I think they do have one white guy working at that school.

It was kind of your fault as well though.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Hopefully he isn't the only Bucs QB losing a job in 2013.

Glennon or Orvloskey are going to get released?
