Ian Williams terrorized NFL quarterbacks as a member of the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive line for more than five seasons. Upon his retirement from the NFL, Ian made a seamless transition to working in the media.
The University of Notre Dame alumnus started working with NBC Sports Bay Area prior to the 2018 NFL season as an analyst on all of the channel’s 49ers shows. Ian’s overall knowledge of the 49ers and the NFL attracted the interest of 95.7 “The Game” in San Francisco. After appearing as a guest on many of the station’s shows, Ian was signed in 2019 to serve as the station’s “49ers Insider.” In this capacity, Ian provided expert analysis on 95.7’s NFL Draft coverage and his performance was well-received by Bay Area and national media critics. The San Francisco Chronicle referred to Ian as one of the “nation’s rising stars in football media.”
In addition, Ian has served as a guest on Las Vegas television and radio shows talking about the Oakland Raiders’ impending move to Las Vegas and on Sirius NFL Radio discussing the 49ers and Raiders.
Ian has also done corporate speaking engagements for numerous Bay Area companies.
Ian graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Film and Theater and is represented by RSR Sports Management, LLC associate Tim Carley.
