Williams left the team last week citing personal concerns, and head coach Matt Eberflus took over calling defensive plays for the Buccaneers’ 27-17 defeat.

“I’m taking a break to focus on my family and health,” the speaker said. Williams stated in a statement, per ESPN, “I appreciate the chance to work with the Chicago Bears, a legendary NFL organization with a rich history.

“The McCaskey family is top-notch and unrivaled. Additionally, I want to express my gratitude to Coach Matt Eberflus and General Manager Ryan Poles for providing me the chance to visit Chicago. Additionally, I want to thank President Kevin Warren, the coaches, and the players, whose relationships and camaraderie I respect. I respect the NFL shield and everything it stands for, and after some time to take care of my health, I intend to return to coaching.

Longtime Chicago Tribune Bears reporter Brad Biggs voiced doubt about Williams’ resignation letter.

There is a lot of rumor around the situation of Bears defensive coordinator Alan Williams. I can tell you that for the past three days, we have believed that his absence had nothing to do with his health or a family issue,” Biggs tweeted.

However, Dianna Russini of The Athletic tweeted, “According to sources, the league is not involved in the Allan Williams incident. I’ve been informed that he chose to resign. The Chicago Bears handled this internally and have characterized it as a personal matter.

Early on Wednesday, Eberflus, who will likely direct the defense’s plays against the Chiefs on Sunday, would not confirm whether Williams was still a member of the squad.

Williams served as an assistant with the Colts, Lions, Vikings, and Buccaneers before taking the position of defensive coordinator with the Bears last season.
