Saturday was not Gregg Williams' greatest moment as a coach, as the Saints defensive coordinator saw his unit allow 41 points in a shocking playoff loss to the Seahawks. A few days later, Williams decided to return to New Orleans to help the team improve.
Williams has taken his name out of the running for the Broncos' head-coaching job, according to multiple sources. Denver was scheduled to meet with him on Wednesday.
Former Panthers head coach John Fox, Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter also have interviews lined up this week with the Broncos.
The way we see it
Williams and his aggressive blitzing scheme were a major reason the Saints won the Super Bowl a season ago, and despite a rough afternoon on Saturday, New Orleans still has the talent to succeed in the coming seasons. A former head coach — Williams led the Bills from 2001-03 — he likely realized he was more comfortable as a coordinator than running another team.
