Jets to Hire Gregg Williams as New Defensive Coordinator

Adam Gase has a new defensive coordinator for his new team the Jets, and it’s someone who comes to the team with plenty of history and baggage.

The team is wrapping up a deal with Gregg Williams, who just wrapped up a season as interim coach of the Cleveland Browns, leading the Browns to an impressive end of the year in which they finished 7-8-1 after starting the year 2-6-1 under Hue Jackson.

The Jets are finalizing a deal to hire Williams, according to the report, as he was believed to be picking between the Jets and Redskins.

Williams would be a somewhat controversial hire, considering his role in the Bountygate scandal with the Saints. He’s an aggressive, in-your-face coach who is known for his attacking style of defense. He served as the Browns’ interim head coach this past season and went 5-3 after the team went 2-5-1 with Hue Jackson.
