MEMPHIS — Memphis tailback DeAngelo Williams will return for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft.

The two-time Conference USA offensive player of the year announced his decision Friday.

Williams, a third-team All-American, ran for 1,948 yards on 313 carries and scored 22 touchdowns in 2004.

He led the Tigers to an 8-4 season and a bid to the GMAC Bowl. It was the first time in school history that Memphis has been to back-to-back bowls.

A 5-foot-10, 217-pounder, Williams is the school's career leader in rushing.
