Gregg Williams to interview for Titans head-coaching position

Gregg Williams

Ten years after he left his job as the Titans’ defensive coordinator to get his first NFL head-coaching job, Gregg Williams may be preparing to return to Tennessee for his second head-coaching job.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Williams, currently the Saints’ defensive coordinator, is scheduled to interview for the Titans’ top job on Thursday.

Williams was identified as a potential candidate last week, but it wasn’t clear how serious his candidacy was. All the reports out of Tennessee have indicated that Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak is the leading candidate.

However, the Titans are at least looking into hiring from outside the organization.

Williams has been with the Saints the last two years. Prior to that he spent on year coordinating the defense in Jacksonville and four in Washington. He was the head coach of the Bills from 2001 to 2003.

    One bad game does not a bad coach make.

    maybe if we setup 2-3 sham interviews with white guys, a minority will also sit in for a sham interview!

    I guess they didn’t see what he did in Buffalo as a Head Coach

    He earned his first head coaching position with the Buffalo Bills. As the Bills’ head coach, his team was known for highly conservative calls, especially on offense. He was the inspiration for Gregg Easterbrook’s designation of “the maroon zone” by frequently punting in opponent territory. Williams was 17-31 as the Bills’ coach, and was fired after a 6-10 record in the 2003 season.
