Gregg Williams is on the verge of becoming the next defensive coordinator of the Jets according to Adam Schefter.

I’m not really sure I understand what the “targeting no matter who their HC was,” part means, but I’m sure this will be a popular hire.

Williams was able to rehabilitate his image in a big way in 2018. He took over as interim head coach of the Browns after Hue Jackson was fired and led a team that seemed to be going nowhere to a 5-3 record over the final eight games of the season. There was actually Playoff buzz in Cleveland in December, which has not been a regular occurrence.

If you follow Williams’ career from the beginning, his record is very up and down as a coordinator with some big years and other years that were less than stellar. His stock is very high right now, which is presumably why the Jets targeted him.
