St. Louis Rams Will Hire Gregg Williams as Defensive Coordinator


The St. Louis Rams are going to bring in former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams onto the coaching staff so that he can run the Ram defense.

Williams runs an aggressive, attacking defense and will be sure to get after the quarterback. Wiliams will have a talented roster to work with. Robert Quinn and the rest of the guys on defense are going to get after opposing quarterbacks.

Williams was originally hired by the Rams in 2012, but was suspended by the league for his involvement with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. Williams returned to the NFL in 2013 as a Senior Assistant Coach on Defense for the Tennessee Titans and will not be joining Jeff Fisher’s staff again for 2014.

In order to make room for Williams, the Rams have fired DC Tim Walton. Williams was Fisher’s man all along.

How will Gregg Williams do controlling the defense all over again?

    Hallelujah! Without Walton, I think the Rams would have won a couple more games, minimum. Williams’ defense will release the hounds! Also, he will be a valuable asset in assessing defensive talent in the upcoming draft, and free agency. Kudos to Fish for making this move!

    Awesome, I don’t care about the bounty gate. Blown way out of proportion. You can say a lot of things to fire up a team, if it was as bad as they said it would have been a lifetime ban. Not a year

    Wow !

    this was fishers choice all along we did a lmost as well in 2012 with defense by committee and certainly better than any team since 2005 or so on that side of the ball. when comparing bounty gate to the patriots spygate i think the pats was a more serious violation telling a guy to go kill em guys is nothing the other teams do not do!! spying on another team is by far a more unfair practice when the rams ran 2-3 special plays in the super bowl and the pats knew what was coming and the rams had never run the plays is far worse than saying kill em boys!!
