(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — After being suspended for his role in the Saints bounty scandal, the NFL reinstated defensive coordinator Gregg Williams on Thursday.
Upon his reinstatement, the Tennessee Titans hired Williams as their senior assistant coach for its defense.
“He will bring a great deal of defensive knowledge and energy to our staff. The decision to bring him here only came after going through a thoughtful and thorough process,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said in a statement.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement that Williams has accepted his responsibility for his role in the bounty scandal and pledged he would not be involved in another pay for performance again.
Goodell also said Williams will be under “periodic monitoring to confirm his compliance.”
