The Chicago Bears have announced its defensive coordinator Alan Williams resigned Wednesday, taking a step back from football.

“I am taking a step back to take care of my health and family. I appreciate the opportunity to work with the Chicago Bears, a storied NFL franchise with a rich history,” Williams said in a statement.

“I value the NFL shield and all that it stands for, and after taking some time to address my health, I plan to come back and coach again,” he added.
Bears coach Matt Eberflus took over defensive play-calling duties for the team last Sunday during its 27-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Eberflus said Wednesday he will also call the defensive plays Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

“We have [safeties coach] Andre Curtis, [cornerbacks coach/passing game coordinator] Jon Hoke, all those guys that have great experience,” Eberflus said, according to ESPN. “Guys that have been in our system. [Linebackers coach Dave] Borgonzi, [assistant defensive backs coach David] Overstreet, all those guys are working diligently, so we’re prepared and ready to go.”
