Rams make quick hire, bring Gregg Williams back

That didn’t take long.

Within minutes of reports that the Rams were firing defensive coordinator Tim Walton, they have his replacement already.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Rams are expected to hire Gregg Williams as their new defensive coordinator.

Williams was going to have the job two years ago before his NFL suspension, but came back and served his penance for a year with the Titans as a consultant.

Williams’s track record as an assistant (at least as it is confined to the play on the field) is a good one, and he added some credibility and edge to the Titans last year.
