Damien Williams: No Hard Feelings After Dismissal From Team

Former OU running back Damien Williams says he harbors no ill will toward Sooners coach Bob Stoops, who dismissed Williams in November after multiple team rules violations.

“It was great,” Williams said after participating in OU’s Pro Day on Wednesday. “Being able to come back after the situation that happened was great, and me and Coach Stoops talked and there’s no hard feelings. He let me come back and do the Pro Day. I feel great.”

Williams, a San Diego native, transferred to OU from an Arizona junior college before his junior season in 2012. He was the Sooners’ leading rusher that year but was suspended for the Sooners’ third game of his senior season against Tulsa.

Williams didn’t elaborate when asked about his dismissal, only saying: “It was just a school rule. I didn’t abide by the rules. If you don’t abide by the rules you have to go.” (The Oklahoman)
