    RUMOR: Gregg Williams hired as Jacksonville defensive coordinator

    Jacksonville radio station 1010XL is reporting that the Jaguars have added former Redskins assistant head coach-defense Gregg Williams to their coaching staff.

    Williams will reportedly get the title of defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. He replaces Mike Smith, who left Jacksonville to become head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

    According to the station, the team is not planning to make an official announcement for at least another day.

    A Buddy Ryan disciple, Williams has long had a reputation as one of the best defensive game planners in the business. Williams spent the last four seasons as Joe Gibbs’ top assistant with the Redskins and was at one point considered the front-runner to get the head-coaching job when Gibbs retired, but after multiple interviews for the job, he and Redskins owner Daniel Snyder agreed that Williams would go elsewhere.

    Several other teams, including the Cowboys, were said to be interested in adding Williams to their coaching staffs.
    Reported by ProFootballTalk and subsequently referenced by Rotoworld, will update with official confirmation.

    Anyone posting odds on JAX as the AFC SB rep next year? I am impressed with Girard at QB and their running game. They pass just well enough to be effective.
