Jeff Fisher would consider hiring Gregg Williams again
The St. Louis Rams officially unveiled their coaching staff this week and it is one without a defensive coordinator.
Presumably, the team will sort that issue out in the near future and chances are it will involve a handful of people with Gregg Williams out of the picture for now, suspended indefinitely by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for his running a bounty program over the last three seasons with the New Orleans Saints.
It’s possible Williams will return to the Rams one day. Goodell has said he will reconsider Williams’ situation after a year if he works to promote fair play and sportsmanship, among other things. Rams coach Jeff Fisher, visiting with ESPN’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning” said he can’t rule it out.
"You know we have to consider that" Fisher said. "I think there will be a lot of conversations at the league-office level. Gregg is very, very remorseful at this point. He regrets everything that took place. He came out in his statement and said that. And I think Gregg, at the end of the day, is going to do some great things for this league off the field before he comes back."
Fisher has said he didn’t know about the bounty situation when he hired Williams as his defensive coordinator. Judging by these comments, Fisher would really consider working with him again.
