Colts hire Greg Williams as defensive backs coach

The Colts have made several changes to their coaching staff since agreeing to an extension with head coach Chuck Pagano after the end of the season, including parting ways with defensive backs coach Mike Gillhamer.

They have found his replacement. The Colts announced Wednesday that Greg Williams will take over as the defensive backs coach.

Williams spent the last seven seasons with the Chargers, where he worked as an assistant linebackers coach for four years and an assistant defensive backs coach for the last three seasons. He worked at the college level before moving to San Diego in 2009.

A familial connection may have helped Williams find his way to Indianapolis. The Chargers’ defensive coordinator has been John Pagano, Chuck’s brother, since the 2012 season and he was the head linebackers coach for Williams’ first three season as the assistant position coach.

    Nice to hear that there is a GReg Williams in the NFL that isn’t dirty .

    Shame on the NFL for allowing Gregg to coach. If they took player safety seriously, he would be banned for life.

    Is that Greg or the Gregg that destroyed the Saints causing to lose money and draft picks that set them back through today?

    It’s not the Greg Williams you think it is. This isn’t the bounty gate guy, so unless THIS Greg Williams is also a dbag there is no reason for hate.

    Read the article people, it’s not the same Greg Williams of Bountygate fame

    I feel bad for him, he must get confused for the scumbag Gregg Williams all the time. Bummer.

    Shows how intelligent Vikings fans are. He’s still on the Rams as coordinator.

    Should change his name to Greg Will.I.ams….

    Does he get a participation trophy immediately, or will he have to wait until after the upcoming season?

    I’m glad I read the article before posting mean things about the saints/ rams DC williams.
    Congrats to the new DB coach, who is unfortunately named Greg Williams

    My bad for not reading it…. My hate for the guy is real.. I’ve played long enough to know how serious the damage can be when a “bounty” is placed on players… SORRY GUYS

    Colts are trending down, they are a shell of what they used to be.

    Bountygate was a myth. Extra pay for performance has been around as long as pro football has been around.
