Gregg Williams, Suspended Indefinitely, Seeks Reinstatement

NFL

St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, suspended indefinitely by the NFL for his role in a bounty program, is seeking reinstatement, according to NFL.com.

According to league sources, Williams’ advisors have contacted high-ranking NFL officials to determine what steps the suspended coach should take in order to apply for reinstatement.

Williams, as the Saints’ defensive coordinator, was suspended for his leading role in a system that  offered monetary rewards to Saints’ defensive players who hit to injure opponents, forcing them out of games.

Williams apologized for his role in the bounty program after the suspension and expressed his willingness to do whatever he can to be reinstated as an NFL coach.  The NFL had previously worked with Michael Vick to be reinstated when he was suspended for his role in a dog-fighting ring.
