A recent report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter has shed light on the circumstances surrounding the resignation of former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Alan Williams. The report suggests that inappropriate conduct during his tenure with the organization played a role in his decision to step down.
According to Schefter, the inappropriate conduct in question, while not considered criminal activity, was significant enough to involve the Bears’ HR department in the decision for Alan Williams to step aside.
“I’m told it was not criminal activity, but it was inappropriate, and the Bears’ HR department was involved in the decision for Alan Williams to step aside,” Schefter reported.
Furthermore, Schefter mentioned that a “digital forensic search” was carried out as part of the process surrounding Williams’ resignation, but this procedure is described as a standard operating practice for the team.
Williams made an unexpected resignation from his position on Wednesday, following his absence during the team’s Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Amidst speculation on social media about potential searches of Williams’ home and Halas Hall office, both the team and legal representatives for Williams have refuted any claims of a criminal investigation related to his departure.
