Terrell Williams begins his first season as defensive line coach for the Oakland Raiders. Williams comes to Oakland after spending the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Texas A&M.

In two years at Texas A&M, the Aggies advanced to a pair of bowl games, including a win over Northwestern in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas in 2011. The Aggies led the nation with 51 sacks last year and finished third nationally in tackles for loss, with an average of eight per game.

In 2010, Williams helped lead the Aggies to a share of their first Big 12 South crown in more than a decade and a berth in the Cotton Bowl. Texas A&M allowed just 101.9 rushing yards per game, ranking 12th in the nation. In his first season, A&M improved from 90th to 30th nationally in rushing defense, allowing 130.2 yards per contest.

Williams came to A&M after four years as the defensive line coach at Purdue. During his time with the Boilermakers, Williams coached the entire line each year with the exception of 2008, when he focused solely on the defensive end position. He also served as Purdue’s liaison to the NFL.

In 2007, Williams served an internship with the Seattle Seahawks, assisting the defensive line during training camp. During the summer of 1999, Williams interned with the Jacksonville Jaguars, assisting with the defensive line, and served an internship with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008.

During his time at Purdue, Williams tutored the likes of future Dallas defensive lineman Anthony Spencer. Spencer led the NCAA in tackles for loss and was a first-team All-American before becoming a first-round pick of the Cowboys in 2007. Defensive end Cliff Avril was a third-round selection of the Detroit Lions in 2008, with Alex Magee being selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft. In addition, Mike Neal was drafted in the second round by the Green Bay Packers in 2010, and Ryan Kerrigan was selected by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Prior to his tenure at Purdue, Williams coached the defensive line at Akron in 2004 and 2005. The Zips won the Mid-American Conference championship game in 2005 and played in the Motor City Bowl. Both the league championship and postseason-bowl appearance were firsts in the school’s history.

Williams spent two years (2002-03) as the defensive line coach at Youngstown State before moving on to Akron.

From 1999-2001, Williams served on the coaching staff at North Carolina A&T, working with the defensive line. The Aggies ranked third in total defense among NCAA Division I-AA schools in 1999, allowing 259.4 yards per game, and fifth in 2000 with 261.2 yards per game. The Aggies were the black college national champion in 1999 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Division I-AA playoffs while finishing 10th in the final poll.

Williams got his start in coaching working with the defensive line at Fort Scott Community College during the 1998 season.

A Los Angeles native, Williams earned a bachelor’s degree from East Carolina in 1998. He was a nose guard for the Pirates and a member of the 1995 team that defeated Stanford in the Liberty Bowl, and finished the year ranked No. 23 in the final USA Today/ESPN poll.

Terrell and his wife, Tifini, have a son, Tahj. Their first child, Tyson, passed away in 2012.
