While he's drawing interest from at least one team with a head-coaching vacancy, Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams reiterated Thursday that he's not prepared to leave his current position for just any head-coaching job.

Newly minted Broncos executive John Elway has said he's interested in interviewing Williams for Denver's head-coaching job, but Williams told reporters there has no been no contact between him and the Broncos, since NFL rules prohibit assistant coaches with teams competing in the wild-card round of the playoffs to interview this week. Williams will be eligible to interview with Denver next week if the Saints beat the Seahawks on Saturday.

Saints captain and MLB Jonathan Vilma told PFW earlier this season that he'd hate to see Williams leave New Orleans, but he also said that Williams deserved another chance to be a head coach.

Williams was the Bills' head coach from 2001-03.

Williams said he had "eight different opportunities" to leave when he was the Redskins' D-coordinator from 2004-07 but didn't, and he was adamant that his focus this week is only on the Saints' game against the Seahawks.
