Williams to get $1 million bonus if he's not successor

byESPN.com news services

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.

Williams, 47, compiled a 17-31 record in three seasons (2001-2003) as the Buffalo Bills' head coach. He joined the Redskins in 2004, with his contract then making him one of the NFL's top-paid assistants, and has steadily rehabilitated his image. Most league observers feel Williams will be markedly better in a second stint as a head coach.

Williams is one of the game's most creative defensive minds. He has fashioned a scheme that elevates the performance of the players in it. The Redskins defense statistically ranked ninth in the NFL this year and third in 2004.

Information from ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli was used in this report.
