The Titans have talked with suspended defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and are interested in hiring him, said a person familiar with the situation.
The person said Sunday that Titans coach Mike Munchak has talked with Williams about a position on his staff. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Titans do not discuss personnel moves until they are finalized.
Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Williams indefinitely for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty program. Williams must be reinstated by the NFL before he can be hired by any team. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Sunday that the league has not yet addressed Williams potential reinstatement.
Munchak did not immediately answer a message left by the AP on Sunday. The Titans coach has not talked with the media about his team since the day after the season ended.
Williams was the Saints defensive coordinator from 2009-11 and was hired by St. Louis last season before his suspension by former Titans coach Jeff Fisher. Williams' son, Blake, also was the Rams' linebacker coach but his contract was not renewed earlier this month.
