Redskins asst. Williams signs three-year deal

NFL.com wire reports


WASHINGTON (Jan. 3, 2006) -- Washington Redskins assistant Gregg Williams, considered a top prospect for several of the vacant NFL head coaching positions, signed a three-year contract to remain with the team.


Williams, the former coach of the Buffalo Bills, has produced a top 10 defense in each of his two years with the Redskins. This year's unit ranked ninth and helped the team secure its first playoff berth in six years.


Williams was one of Joe Gibbs' first recruits when the Hall of Fame coach came out of retirement in January 2004. Williams signed a three-year deal with the title of "assistant head coach-defense" and has been seen as natural successor when Gibbs retires again.


But Williams was also expected to be courted by any of the NFL teams that are looking for coaches this offseason. Williams said he turned down two chances to interview last year, but he had indicated recently he might be more tempted to talk to suitors this year.



This is great news for the Skins. I think that if we had lost Gregg, we wouldn't sniff the playoffs next year. Now I have no reason not to look forward to next year.
