Williams was part of Fisher's first staff with the Rams in 2012, but only for a few weeks before getting suspended for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal.

Fisher said at a news conference Thursday that he and Williams spent a few days together coming to terms with the past. Williams, who grew up in Missouri, said he hoped this was his last coaching stop.

Williams scoffed at a claim from a player who said the coach bragged about using a stolen playbook to help Tennessee beat Jacksonville in the 1999 AFC championship game.

Williams called the story a joke and said he had every team's playbook.
