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.
