ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting a new twist in former defensive coordinator Alan Williams’ decision to resign this week. Williams missed the Bears Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for “personal reasons.”
Wild rumors circulated Wednesday about Williams’ absence from the team. The Bears revealed Wednesday afternoon that Williams turned in his resignation Wednesday morning. The reasons given were for “health” and “family” reasons.
ESPN host Pat McAfee reported earlier this week that Williams’ house was raided by the FBI. But no other reports have verified that claim.
Adam Schefter: Chicago Bears HR involved in Alan Williams’ resignation
According to a report by Adam Schefter with ESPN, Williams’ decision to resign stemmed from “inappropriate” behavior. However, Schefter is reporting there was no criminal activity that led the Bears HR to be involved with Williams’ resignation.

It’s an interesting report by Schefter. However, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. The Bears repeatedly denied throughout the week they were involved with his resignation. And the reason for the resignation seems…a little bit lighter than the rumors that have been circulating around Halas Hall.
Like most national reporters, Schefter is known for being generous (
a blatant PR mouthpiece) to owners and front offices with his reports. After all, Schefter needs their help for transaction scoops.
I’m highly skeptical that this report won’t put the Williams story to bed. But it is interesting the Bears HR was reportedly involved with the resignation.
