Bryson Allen-Williams, a former South Carolina linebacker who expanded his coaching experience with a defensive graduate assistant role with North Carolina, is headed to the Pac-12.

Allen-Williams shared on social media that he would join Southern Cal in a defensive quality control role. He thanked Mack Brown and Gene Chizik for “taking a chance on me and giving me the ability to learn from two legends!” Allen-Williams came to Chapel Hill in 2022 after he spent 2 years as a graduate assistant at Georgia State.

“The relationships I have been able to develop and personal growth as a man and coach over the past year has been a blessing,” Allen-Williams wrote.

Allen-Williams appeared in 49 games with 22 career starts at South Carolina in a career that ended in 2018. He recorded 176 career tackles including 27.5 tackles for loss, which is tied for 10th on South Carolina’s all-time list.

After college, Allen-Williams signed with the Las Vegas Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2019.
