Saints DC Gregg Williams May Follow Jeff Fisher, According To Report

If Jeff Fisher does in fact choose the St. Louis Rams as his next head coaching destination, the team may have a new defensive coordinator sooner rather than later. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported today that there is a feeling around the league that New Orleans Saints DC Gregg Williams will follow Fisher wherever he goes next season.

Williams and Fisher have a history together that stretches back into the early 1990s, when Williams was a defensive assistant for the Houston Oilers while Fisher coordinated the defense. After the team moved to Tennessee, Williams was the Titans defensive coordinator under Fisher from 1997-2000, which includes the Titans' AFC Championship season in 1999.
