Gregg Williams to be Jets Defensive Coordinator

The New York Jets are finalizing a deal to bring on Gregg Williams as their new defensive coordinator according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Williams was the defensive coordinator for the Browns in 2017 and 2018, but took over as interim coach when Hue Jackson was fired this season. He led the Browns to a 5-3 record down the stretch. The Browns decided to not bring him back as head coach and rather hired Freddie Kitchens.

He has had stops as defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans/Oilers, the Washington Redskins, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the New Orleans Saints, the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams and the Cleveland Browns.

Williams has notoriety for his role in “Bountygate” with the Saints from 2009-2011. He was suspended by the league for the 2012 season, but has since been able to come back and be a coordinator.

He will join new head coach Adam Gase for the Jets.
