Gregg Williams Reinstated, Hired in One Fell Swoop
Former Saints/Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has already been hired by a team after officially being reinstated by the NFL Thursday.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell approved the contract offered to Williams by the Tennessee Titans to become their “Senior Assistant/Defense.”
“Commissioner Roger Goodell today notified Gregg Williams and the Tennessee Titans that Williams’ contract with the Titans has been approved and that he has been reinstated,” read the statement released by the NFL. “The commissioner cited several reasons for the reinstatement, including Williams’ forthcoming acknowledgement of and acceptance of responsibility for his role in the bounty program at the Saints, his commitment to never again be involved in a pay-for-performance or bounty system, and his pledge to teach safe play and respect for the rules at all levels of the game.
Williams must fully conform to league rules and will be subject to periodic monitoring to confirm his compliance.
