ESPN: Gregg Williams to get $1m bonus if he's not Gibbs' successor
Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who signed a three-year contract for $7.8 million, is staying put, ESPN's Chris Mortensen has confirmed.
Teams looking for head coaches did complain about reports that Williams was precluded by the contract from interviewing for any vacancies this year -- the league reminded the Redskins they can't do that.
Still, he's not going anywhere and Mortensen has confirmed that if and when Joe Gibbs retires, Williams will get a $1 million bonus if he is still on staff and is not named as Gibbs' successor.
This seems to seal the deal that Williams has been set up to be the coach of the future from the very beginning.
