On Tuesday, we told you that Gregg Williams was expected to be reinstated by the league this week. Two days later, we now have word that Williams is now officially reinstated and will take a job as Senior Assistant/Defense for the Tennessee Titans.
Here’s the statement from the NFL:
“Commissioner Roger Goodell today notified Gregg Williams and the Tennessee Titans that Williams’ contract with the Titans has been approved and that he has been reinstated. The commissioner cited several reasons for the reinstatement, including Williams’ forthcoming acknowledgement of and acceptance of responsibility for his role in the bounty program at the Saints, his commitment to never again be involved in a pay-for-performance or bounty system, and his pledge to teach safe play and respect for the rules at all levels of the game. The commissioner emphasized that Williams must fully conform to league rules and will be subject to periodic monitoring to confirm his compliance.
