(EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo.) — The New Orleans Saints bounty scandal has been one of the bigger storylines during the NFL’s offseason. The man who ran the operation, former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, vows he will coach in the league once again.
“I will coach again,” Williams said at his annual Gregg Williams Foundation Tiger Classic golf tournament.
It was Williams’ first known pubic appearance since the scandal was made public back in March. He was hired by the St. Louis Rams to run the team’s defense, but was eventually suspended by the NFL for his role in the bounty system.
“He does not feel sorry for himself,” a friend of Williams told ESPN.com. “He feels bad that everybody has had to suffer through this thing.”
Along with players suspensions, head coach Sean Payton was suspended the entire 2012 season and general manager Mickey Loomis was suspended for eight games of the 2012 season.
