Gregg Williams is Jets' new defensive coordinator

The New York Jets are bringing in Gregg Williams as their new defensive coordinator.

According to earlier reports, Williams was the man the Jets wanted to run the team's defense no matter who was hired as head coach. The team have hired Adam Gase as their new head coach.

Williams was not retained as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns despite leading the team to a 5-3 record after being given the interim title during the 2018 season when Hue Jackson was fired.

He was the defensive coordinator before and has served the same role with the Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans.

He also went 17-31 as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills from 2001-03.

Williams is known for running a base 4-3 defense, and the Jets ran a 3-4 under former head coach Todd Bowles, so the team will have to go through a transition on that side of the ball under Williams.


Welcome our new DC Gregg Williams!
