Rams Part Ways With Gregg Williams, Son Blake Williams
Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was suspended indefinitely last year for his role in the Saints bounty scandal and never coached in St. Louis, is out as a member of the staff, according to an ESPN report.
Williams' son, Blake, who served as the Rams' linebackers coach in 2012, also won't return.
Because Gregg Williams hasn't been reinstated by the league, his employment status remains up in the air, whether he's currently on an NFL staff or not. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Tuesday that Blake Williams is telling other coaches that he and his father are done with the Rams.
Gregg Williams was hired by longtime friend and first-year Rams coach Jeff Fisher last offseason, before the Saints bounty scandal broke.
