Jeff Fisher Says Rams Had No Idea About Williams' Bounty Program

Recently hired St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher discussed the recent indefinite suspension of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams by the NFL on Wednesday, noting that the team never would have hired Williams if it was aware of the impending situation.

Jason La Canfora of NFL.com says that Fisher was surprised by the ruling, which may keep Williams out of the NFL permanantly. Fisher also said that he's not ready to announce a replacement for Williams yet as he tries to bring the Rams back to relevance.

Fisher also said that Williams was shocked and remorseful, but that the organization will move on, according to Evan Silva of NBC Sports. Williams was suspending by the NFL on Wednesday for orchestrating a bounty program with the New Orleans Saints, who were hit with major punishments by the league as a result of the infraction.
