The Saints have themselves a new defensive coordinator, and it’s a name that they hope will able to turn around a unit that has struggled the past two seasons – Gregg Williams.
Williams got the position on Thursday morning, but terms of the deal were not immediately available. He has more than enough experience and is one of the more respected defensive minds in the game and one of the most coveted candidates on the market.
Last season the Saints defense were ranked 23rd in the NFL in yards allowed and tied for 26th in points allowed last season. Williams was with the Jaguars last season, but won’t go back after a season where the Jags struggled and didn’t meet up to the level they felt they were going to.
