The article presents information on the professional life of football coach Gregg Williams. St. Louis Rams is looking for a new coach. One of the names being bandied about is Washington Redskins assistant Gregg Williams. The Rams supposedly want to bring in a proven defensive coach, which Williams certainly is, so the prevailing notion when the Redskins visited St. Louis was that the game would be Williams' method of posting his job resume for everyone in the Rams' organization to see. Williams' defense limited the Rams to one measly touchdown and reduced quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
