Gregg Williams, Suspended Indefinitely, Says He Will Coach Again

Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams spoke publicly Friday for the first time since being suspended indefinitely for orchestrating a pay-for-performance bounty program. At a charity golf event in his hometown of Excelsior Springs, Mo., Williams said "I will coach again," when asked about his future.

Williams also said that he has not spoken with commissioner Roger Goodell since the penalties were levied. Otherwise, he refrained from saying much about the bounty scandal, instead turning attention to his charity, the Gregg Williams Foundation.

The logistics of Williams returning to the league seem daunting at the moment. Then again, the allegations are still relatively fresh. Four players -- Jonathan Vilma, Scott Fujita, Anthony Hargrove and Will Smith -- appealed their suspensions in connection with the bounty program. All four suspensions were upheld by Goodell and the NFL.
