08:41 AM ET 07.14 | Rain interrupted the Gregg Williams Tigers Classic, an annual golf benefit fundraiser the former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator has put on eight years in a row in his hometown. Since NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell barred Williams, who had left the Saints to join Jeff Fisher's staff in St. Louis, he hadn't made any public appearances. That changed Friday, but Williams declined an interview request. "I want to keep the focus on the kids," he said, referring to those who will benefit from the money raised with the golf tournament. Before walking away, however, he said he "will coach again" in the NFL but offered no specifics and indicated he hadn't talked with Goodell.

If he does, I'm sure he will have learned an important lesson.

Maybe bench coach for a college D-3 team?

He's too good of a Defense coach to not coach somewhere.

I believe Penn State is looking for help.

Put some bounties on the "mariquan".

Is that how you spell that, my spell checker doesn't speak Spanish?

July 14, 2012  10:31 AM ET

Well the National Felons League has set a precedence

In Pop Warner, the bounties are paid with trips to the Dairy Queen.

In the Arena league, the bounties are paid with gift certificates to Olive Garden.

I would imagine that if Goodell intends to make it "banned forever" there be some leagle recourse. I don't belei\\ieve you can block someone from gainful employment with out due process.
