Rapoport: Jets Close To Adding Gregg Williams As DC

Gregg Williams

Ian Rapoport just tweeted that the head coach Adam Gase is close to hiring Gregg Williams to be the Jets new defensive coordinator. Williams has previous head coaching experience which is a big plus. He was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills and he served as interim head coach this past season of the Cleveland Browns. He also served as defensive coordinator of the Rams, Browns, Jaguars and Saints. It was in New Orleans that Williams ran into some trouble and was suspended for his role in “Bounty Gate”.

One possible defensive coordinator candidate was ruled out today as former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is set to join the Arizona Cardinals.
