This isnít a huge surprise, but ESPNís Adam Schefter reports that New Orleans offensive coordinator Gregg Williams is expected to leave the Saints and join Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.

Williams worked for Fisher in Tennessee and the two are close friends. Williamsí contract with New Orleans is expiring and there had been speculation he would join Fisher. Williams joined the Saints in 2009 and his trademark opportunistic defense came up with lots of turnovers as New Orleans won the Super Bowl that season.

But Williamsí defense wasnít able to produce turnovers at anywhere near the same rate in 2010 or 2011. The Saintsí defense collapsed late in the fourth quarter of Saturdayís playoff loss to San Francisco. If Williams hadnít already made a decision on his future, the two late touchdowns scored by the 49ers might have sealed his fate. I never got the sense Williams and head coach Sean Payton were especially close and Payton might have been looking to make a change after what happened Saturday.
