Former Bills head coach and current St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams issued the following statement on his former boss Ralph Wilson following his passing Tuesday.
“I join the entire football community in mourning the loss of a truly great man in Ralph Wilson. I’m forever grateful to Mr. Wilson for giving me the opportunity to be a head coach in the National Football League. As a coach, Mr. Wilson was everything you could ask for in an owner. He was a very passionate football fan. He was progressive in his thoughts, he loved his players and he provided every resource you could ask for. It’s hard to imagine where our game and our league might be today were it not for his role in creating and more importantly sustaining the American Football League. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Wilson family at this difficult time.”
Williams’ first head coaching job in the NFL was under Wilson with the Bills in 2001.
