Jets Fire Gregg Williams After Controversial Blitz Call Against Raiders

Williams' blitz call might have cost the Jets a victory


Gregg Williams’ time with the Jets reportedly has come to an end.

New York on Monday fired its defensive coordinator, according to multiple reports. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported news of Williams’ firing.

The Jets’ decision was made less than a day after the team’s embarrassing loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. With his team leading by four points in the closing seconds, Williams called a cover-zero blitz despite the Raiders having been at midfield.

Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr connected with receiver Henry Ruggs III on a 46-yard touchdown pass to give the Raiders a lead with five seconds remaining. The Jets eventually lost to remain winless on the season.

Williams’ decision since has been widely mocked across the NFL and, presumably, led to his firing.

Williams, 62, joined the Jets before the 2019 season.
