Ex-Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams close to joining Titans
Nashville, TN, United States (4E Sports) – Suspended former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams may soon become the Titans’ assistant coach.
But he must first be reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before he signs a contract.
Goodell said he would consider a reinstatement for Williams if he found a team willing to hire him. Williams has worked as an assistant with Tennessee from 1993-2000.
He has met with Titans officials, including head coach Mike Munchak, who favors his addition to the staff, according to sources.
Additionally, former Titans and St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has endorsed Williams to his former employer.
Fisher hired Williams to lead St. Louis’ defense this season, but Williams’ suspension for his role in theSaints’ bounty scandal lasted the entirety of the 2012-13 season. Williams was not retained by the Rams at season’s end.
