Gregg Williams on possible head coaching interest: I love it here

Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams contended last year that he’s been offered four head coaching jobs without even interviewing with teams since he was last a permanent head coach with the Bills in 2003 and the prospect of further overtures came up during a Friday press conference.

Williams did a good job as the interim coach with the Browns last year, but Freddie Kitchens got the permanent job and Williams moved to a role on Adam Gase’s staff with the Jets. He’s put together a decent unit while contending with a lack of edge rushers, the season-long absence of linebacker C.J. Mosley, a ragtag group of cornerbacks and an offense that hasn’t helped out all that much.

On Friday, Williams was asked about how he’d react to that effort leading to head coaching interest.

“I love it here,” Williams said, via multiple reporters.

If teams are interested in Williams, we should know at some point in the next week unless they once again avoid interviews and just offer him the job right off the bat.

  1. Gregg “bountygate” Williams, Doug Moron, Freddie Kitchens……nothing but The Best for the NFL….

  2. He was definitely offered those jobs without interviewing. It’s not like there’s a rule that mandates minority candidates get interviewed first or something.

  3. The seventh overall Defense with your top FA signing out for the year, virtually no corners (Trumaine Johnson gave up), no edge rushers, Williamson out, and a patchwork group of D-Linemen. Interested to see what he does with everyone back and a couple of off-season acquisitions.

  4. Good stay coach we all love you. The jets defense has been lights out this year with all the injuries and backups who have been playing. Say what you want about Gase but him and this coaching staff hold every player accountable and it’s a honor to see the field nothing is given. If you don’t perform you do not play and I love that about this team
