Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has met with the staff of the Tennessee Titans and is close to becoming the team's assistant head coach, reports ESPN.com.

Williams was suspended indefinitely by the NFL last March for his role in the Saints bounty program. Before Williams can be hired the league has to lift his suspension.

Williams was the ringleader of the Saints’ pay-for-performance bounty program as defensive coordinator in New Orleans and was hired by Rams head coach Jeff Fisher as defensive coordinator before the league started to dig into the Saints bounty program.

Should Williams be reinstated, no obstacles are expected on the contractual front, according to sources. The two sides are familiar with each other with Williams having worked in Tennessee from 1997-2000.

Williams has been a defensive coach in the league since 1990 and helped the Saints win the Super Bowl after the 2009 season.
