Ronell Williams

Defensive Quality Control


Ronell Williams will be in his third season as a defensive quality control coach with the Bears in 2021 after being hired by the club on January 18, 2019.

Williams re-joined the Bears as a defensive quality control coach in 2019 after being hired by the club in 2018 when he was brought on during training camp as part of the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.

Prior to his arrival in Chicago, Williams completed his second year as a defensive analyst at Temple in 2018, guiding a defense that led the American Athletic Conference in interceptions (18) and was second in sacks (36) across 13 games. Williams spent the 2016 season at Widener University as an assistant coach, working primarily with the linebackers.

The former linebacker was a four-year letterman at Division II West Chester University where he led the team in tackles for three straight seasons (2011-13). He became the first sophomore and third defensive player in school history to earn first-team All-America honors by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) in 2012.
