ESPN now reports that Gregg Williams has in fact been fired by the Rams.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that the St. Louis Rams have parted ways with defensive coordinator Blake Williams and there’s a chance that his father, Gregg, is also out.
Glazer adds that Blake is already looking for another job and telling people around the league that his father will also be let go. Glazer mentions that a decision regarding Gregg “won’t be made till he’s reinstated.”
It’s not all that surprising to see changes made given Gregg’s involvement in the Saints bounty scandal and the fact that head coach Jeff Fisher comes from the defensive side of the ball. It’s hard to say whether or not Gregg will get another shot in the NFL, but his son should at least have an opportunity with another team, but possibly in a different capacity.
