Tom Williams has resigned over lying on his resume.
He resigned as the Yale football, as the university is investigatig if he lied on his resume. Williams claims on his resume thate he was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship as a student at Stanford.
The resignation will not be official until December 31st. Williams was hired away from the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009 and had his self as a Rhodes scholar on his resume.
His resume came into question when Bulldogs quarterback Patrick Witt decides to play in a game against Harvard instead of going to his Rhodes interview. The New York Times reported in November that the Rhodes Trust had no records of Williams interviewing for the award when he graduated from Stanford in 1992.
“I am extremely proud of my academic, athletic and coaching career,” he said. “If there was confusion created, I take full responsibility. The timing of this inquiry has been difficult for everyone. At this point I believe it is in the best interest of my student-athletes and Yale University that I step down.”
