Suspended Gregg Williams can look for coaching jobs
 
Sean Payton is back in the fold. Gregg Williams might not be far behind.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reported Tuesday that Williams, suspended indefinitely for his role in the New Orleans Saints' "bounty" fiasco, is free to look for work, according to the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell, however, plans to review Williams' reinstatement if and when he lands a job. That's an unusual wrinkle to the deal, to say the least.

Payton was reinstated from his season-long suspension as coach of the Saints on Tuesday, but it's obvious New Orleans is not a landing spot for Williams. Same goes for the St. Louis Rams.

Williams was hired last offseason as defensive coordinator of the Rams, but won't return to that role, a team source told Breer. The Rams already are shopping for someone else to run their defense.

It's unlikely a team is going to bring Williams on at the coordinator level for the 2013 season. It would invite an unwanted circus and he'd be under the proverbial microscope.

There's also the issue of timing here. Any team going through the trouble of hiring Williams must wait for Goodell's decision on his status. As Williams attempts a comeback, that's an overt roadblock -- one that might keep suitors away.

With eight new head coaches filling out their staffs and plenty of assistant shuffling ahead, however, Williams does stand a chance of landing a new gig.

Goodhell must be feeling particularly magnanimous today.

I am really curious to see if anyone hires Williams.

Has to find a job before he can find out if he will be reinstated, sure that's going to work :rolleyes:

No team in their right mind will chance it...

I think his "style" has been outlawed, and I am not sure he has another one in his pocket.

Sure, a team might hire him... No players will ever TRUST him.

This whole sham is a result of Williams style of coaching and Payton is going to serve the same punishment?

Goodell just keeps screwing things up...

He is still screwing with Williams by having to agree to him being hired. Wow! Godhell is such an arse hole!!! :furious:

Well, this is what I stated would probably end up happening, when the suspensions were first announced, and it seems I was right.

I thought that SP and GW would probably end up serving the same length of time, but SP would be (in practice) punished more harshly because of the difference in salary he lost in comparison to GW.

And that is ridiculous, if we are to believe the league's claims that GW was orchestrating the bounty program and had even put money in the pool himself, and SP was "only" guilty of not putting an end to the practice.

Based on what I've seen from Spags, I'd take Williams back in a heartbeat if no other options are available.

I'd rather have Jerry Jones become the GM of the Saints than see that wiesel back coaching the black & gold.

Absolutely! At least we weren't record breakingly bad under Williams. Even mediocre could've seen us getting ready for the big one....
