Passing Game Coordinator (Defense) Greg Williams

In continuation of the NFL's commitment to promoting greater diversity across the NFL, the League announced plans today to host a Coach Accelerator on May 21-23 at the Spring League Meeting in Minneapolis. The Spring Accelerator follows the inaugural Coach and Front Office Accelerator and the Front Office Accelerator hosted at previous League meetings in 2022.

The Packers will be represented by Passing Game Coordinator (Defense) Greg Williams at the Coach Accelerator.

The Coach Accelerator aims to increase exposure between owners, executives, and diverse coaching talent, providing ample opportunity to develop and build upon their relationships. In a change to the nomination process this year, clubs were able to nominate those from outside of their organization, which promotes recognition and growth beyond one's current club.

The 40 participants this year are attending based on their high potential to be considered for a Head Coach position in the future. Sixteen of the participants will be returning from the May 2022 Accelerator cohort.

Williams, who is entering his first season with the Packers and his 15th season coaching in the NFL, spent the last four seasons (2019-22) as the cornerbacks coach for the Arizona Cardinals. In 2022, he guided a cornerback group that helped Arizona rank No. 2 in the league in yards allowed per completion (10.10), the top single-season mark by the Cardinals since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Williams began his NFL coaching career with the San Diego Chargers, serving as assistant linebackers coach from 2009-12 and as assistant secondary coach from 2013-15. He also coached defensive backs with the Indianapolis Colts (2016-17) and the Denver Broncos (2018).
