Why did the Tennessee Titans hire Gregg Williams?

Sports Illustrated's Peter King spoke with Tennessee Titans Coach Mike Munchak during the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix and asked him why he hired Gregg Williams, the former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator who was suspended by the NFL for the 2012 season for orchestrating the team's bounty/pay-for-performance system.

It's worth the read.

One especially interesting section is Munchak's take on the infamous tape recording made before the divisional playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers during the 2011 playoffs:

"The stuff Gregg said, I heard him say it a hundred times, going back to when we (the Oilers) hired him as a quality-control in 1990," Munchak told King. "I never thought he crossed the line. It was just the way he talked. Rah rah. No one ever thought he meant to hurt anyone. If I didn't know him, his words would probably be a problem. But I knew Gregg. I'd heard it all before.

"He doesn't mean to go out there and actually hurt somebody. When you read the words on paper, knock the guy out, you want to hurt him, I don't think players' minds go there. They don't want to end someone's career. They want to make a guy uncomfortable. They want to take a guy out of his game. Not to hurt someone. I never saw it as, 'Go hurt someone.' ''

Nothing wrong with the rant. The NFL didn't even mention it. You can say whatever you want in the NFL as long as you don't actually create a trail, even if made of crumbs that you attempted it.
