It's official, the St. Louis Rams announced Gregg Williams as the team's new defensive coordinator.
Head coach Jeff Fisher and Williams have six seasons of experience working together. Fisher hired Williams to be his defensive coordinator in 2012. But, Williams was implicated in the Saints bounty-gate controversy and he was suspended by the NFL.
Williams was re-instated last year and served as a consultant for the Tennessee Titans. The two will be reunited again with the Rams for the 2014 season.
The St. Louis Rams are in the market for a new Defensive Coordinator.
The team fired current coordinator Tim Walton. Head Coach Jeff Fisher said in a release from the team, “I wish him well in the future.” The search for Walton's replacement could be a short one. Gregg Williams is expected to be hired for the position. Williams was originally hired by the Rams in 2012 to serve as Defensive Coordinator, but was suspended for the season after the NFL found out he ran a bounty program while with the New Orleans Saints.
Williams was reinstated last year and served as a consultant for the Tennessee Titans.
