Generally, any coach can interview for a higher position on another team, with the permission of his current team.

But it sounds like Snyder's going to make Williams one of the highest-paid coaches in the league-- head coach or not. So considering he still has kids in school-- and he's said they don't want to move, and he doesn't want to move them-- I'd say if the money's the same here, he probably won't go anywhere else.

Another team would have to put together a real blockbuster deal to pull Williams away from Washington. That's not to say it won't happen, but from the sound of it, Williams would want a personnel situation similar to what Gibbs has here with the Redskins-- meaning as head coach he would have significant control over personnel decisions, and the ownership would be willing to spend whatever is necessary to make those decisions a reality. There simply aren't that many franchises where that situation would work-- at least not with someone with a less-than-stellar head coaching record like Williams's.

I think Williams knows how good he has it here, and I think he's competitive enough that he wouldn't back down from the challenge of filling Gibbs's hallowed shoes when Gibbs retires.

The Washington Redskins have signed Gregg Williams, assistant head coach/defense, to a new three-year contract, the team announced on Jan. 3
"Gregg is a valuable and important member of our organization,' said Head Coach Joe Gibbs. "This is a first step in recognizing his contributions and maintaining consistency among our coaches."

After returning to the Washington Redskins in 2004, Gibbs made putting together a premium coaching staff a priority and he started with Williams. In just two seasons Williams has solidified the Redskins defense among the best in the NFL, finishing 2005 ranked ninth in the league and 2004 ranked third.

Considered one of the brightest defensive minds in professional football, Williams brought a brand of defense based on toughness and persistence to the Redskins, as well as a proven track record of shaping NFL defensive squads into among the league's best year after year.

Williams came to Washington after three years as Head Coach of the Buffalo Bills, where in 2003 his defense finished second in the NFL, improving from 15th in 2002 and 21st in 2001.

He took over as head coach of the Buffalo Bills after 11 seasons in the Tennessee/Houston organization, including four seasons as defensive coordinator, where his 2000 defensive team ranked No. 1 in the NFL.

Coach Williams will be interviewed live today at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Redskins.com.
you're than man. guys here at the office are hitting the ceiling with jubulation.!!!

This is the type of character that Joe Gibbs keeps around him. This is why he is a HOF coach and this is why the players play so hard for them. This is why Snyder wanted Gibbs back....stability, consistency, and CHAMPIONSHIP FOOTBALL!

Not sure how true this is, but the fox sports article explicitly states Williams has agreed not to interview this offseason. He has the option to test the coaching market next year though.

I would expect that to be the case. The new contract is basically a one-year guarantee of Williams's retention as Assistant Head Coach-Defense. But like I said, I don't expect him to be going anywhere after next season, either.

Who knew Snyder's grotesque display of money could be used for good?

Re: Williams will stay....yyeeeeeaaaaaahhhh!

I have nothing to add to this discussion except the fact that I am literally bouncing in my chair at work with joy. I would jump up and down with excitement, but its a quiet office with no other Skins fans! THIS MAKES MY DAY!!!!

Seriously, this is what I have been asking for the whole season -- blockbuster deal with a promise that he is next in line after Gibbs retires. GOOD WORK DANNY!!

Essentially this changes the complexion of what current vacancies will be filled by the remaining candidates. And it could potentially drive up the bargaining power of top assistants around the league.

I think that some owners will definitely be pissed at Snyder for this move.

Wow this is such great news. I was really thinking he would seriously consider a coaching position but am glad I was wrong. We should have a great defense for years to come and hopefully GW will take over as the coach after Gibbs leaves (I think he thought of this and realized that if he waits three more years, we would gladly offer him the job).

Three cheers for consistency!!!

Now let's not try to make too many massive sweeping personnel changes on the offseason.

Time to gel baby!

WOW. You had to figure Gibbs and Sysnder would want to lock G-Dub up. You gotta love Synder's willingness to win at any cost, literally. In the early years he thought it was all about spending on players. It took Gibbs to teach him that it was about coaches and the RIGHT players. I always wondered how Synder could be so successful in his business endeavors but struggle so poorly as an owner. He has learned from his mistakes with losing Marvin Lewis. He has finally figured it out. Kudos Dan Synder!
