We could probably argue that he has had a 3rd and 4th chance as well. Gregg Williams, the embattled defensive coordinator that was the figurehead of the Bounty-Gate scandal with the New Orleans Saints, is looking at the real possibly of never coaching again in the NFL. He received an indefinite suspension, and Roger Goodell could opt to never lift it. However, there have been several people suggesting that he deserves another shot at coaching after he misses all of the 2012 season.

Gregg Williams, for all intents and purposes, was carrying out similar bounty programs for several years.  Former players have already confirmed it, and there have been suspicions from opposing coaches for years. But that isn’t the reason why he shouldn’t be given this mythological second chance that has been suggested.  He was warned about the investigation when it began in 2010, and then preceded to not only lie about his involvement and whether or not it was taking place, but continued the practice all the way through to the end of the Saints playoff run this past season. We have audio calling for his defenders to injure members of the 49ers, and an eyewitness account saying that he gave a gesture indicating that he would pay someone for taking out Alex Smith.

Yes, we love a redemption story in this country, but Williams is going to have to find a way to make that happen while not being allowed on an NFL field. He blew his privilege to continue to be a coach in the NFL when he chose to lie and then ignore several warnings. This was a pattern of behavior that Williams has exhibited all during his career. His chances are gone.

Williams needs to learn of few things. Maybe he needs to educate himself on what the violence of the sport has done to some players. Go spend some time with guys that are absolutely debilitated and need help being fed. Maybe he can learn a few things and then coach younger players on how to use proper technique in tackling, and how you can be powerful without intent to injure. Yes, the sport can be incredibly violent at times, but having a desire to ruin a player’s body and career should never be tolerated. The goal on defense is simple: don’t let the other team score. But this does not mean by any means necessary. Williams needs to learn and then teach that. Just not at the NFL level. He blew that chance a few times.
