Default Gregg Williams withdraws his name

Per the Saints beat writer on Twitter.

Just learned that DC Gregg Williams will not interview with the Denver Broncos. He plans to withdraw his name as a coaching candidate today.

After that fiasco by his defense this past weekend, the handwriting was on the wall. Interesting that Lombardi reported on NFLN that Mularkey is not the front runner in Cleveland. He may be back in the mix for us after all.

Candidates that have already been fired once from a Head Coaching job would tend to be more picky on where they go for their second chance.... because they probably won't get a third one.

I don't think it's Elway - maybe Xanders. But, really, I think we have certain parameters the new coach must work in - i.e. sharing power on personnel that does not appeal to some big names. Also, we are clearly not going to pay big dollars. Harbaugh didn't bother me and neither does Williams (no way he gets hired after that playoff game), but Mularkey concerned me. I still think we are his second choice but I am pleased he is back in consideration. Beyond Harbaugh and Williams, no one has said "no thanks" that I am aware of. At least not those candidates we were considering. I hope we wait for Capers and Mularkey before making a decision.

I was intrigued with Williams, but I can't say a lot of DC's would be that excited about Tebow, let alone the talent level of the D....if he was half hearted to begin with, I'm glad he backed out now.

Think Mularkey only has a shot if the Falcons lose this weekend as IŽd expect us to name a new coach by the middle of next week at the latest.

You really have to wonder if that is the reason. This is really a weird time for Denver. What a mess. Schefter said this morning that he has never seen another team conduct interviews the way that Denver is

i'm not in the know so i hope i'm way off base...

but i don't like how coaches that aren't even B list HC candidates are turning down opportunities to interview for us...

i didnt want gregg williams anyway, he was my least favorite candidate (besides maybe fassell)...and i don't want anyone that doesn't want us...

but man, some of these candidates should be happy to even be given an opportunity to be HC and we're still getting cold shoulders...

Williams will not interview with the Broncos Wednesday as expected. After discussing the opportunity with family, friends, and Saints players, Williams felt as if he needed to remain in New Orleans with his current team after a tough playoff loss in Seattle, the source said Tuesday.

"He didn't feel like he could stand in front of the defense in a team meeting (Tuesday) morning and tell them the things they need to do to win another Super Bowl, and then board a plane to Denver," according to the source.

Bingo. We're getting a lot more info on these dealings than the the norm. Finding the right fit for coach and team is a delicate matter. If Williams has doubts about the Broncos' FO situation or anything else, he's wise to just move on (he's got a sweet gig where he's at after all). I really don't think he would be a good fit for what Elway and Co. are looking for anyway.

I think in this case John could be a detriment until the candidates meet with him and understand he has a lot of help around him.

I think we had to put John in the FO to bring the fan base back into the fold and to stop another fiasco like MCDummy from happening again but yes John could be hurting us a little in the hiring process...................

I got a feeling we'll be naming Fewell HC at least before kickoff on Saturday.
