Rams Didn't Know About Gregg Williams, Saints Bounty Program

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher met with media on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the team's plans now that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely due the his role in running a bounty program with the New Orleans Saints. Fisher clarified that he never would have hired Williams had he known about the investigation.

He also said that the team has no plans to hire another defensive coordinator now that Williams is on the outs. Instead, the Rams will take a by-committee approach, combining the efforts of Fisher, assistant head coach Dave McGinnis and other assistants to hopefully field an NFL-caliber defense.

Williams's future in the NFL is in serious jeopardy following Roger Goodell's decision. Even if the Rams, or another team, wanted to take him on, it is unclear how long "indefinite" really is in this instance. It's possible we have seen the last of Gregg Williams in the NFL.
