According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the former defensive coordinator who filled in after Hue Jackson was fired will not be retained by new coach Freddie Kitchens.

Trying to keep him would have created the kind of internal turmoil they’re trying to move away from, the kind which made Hard Knocks such an awkward watch at times.

Williams has bragged about all the offers he’s had in the past, and will get to pick from those letters now.
