Dennison interviewing with Broncos, Williams out

On Tuesday, Rick Dennison and Dirk Koetter will interview for the Broncos' head coaching position. Gregg Williams, however, will not, and he's pulled himself out of the running for the Denver job (even though Denver requested to interview him just yesterday).

That's according to Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, who noted that Williams would withdraw his name from consideration as a coaching candidate.

Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network cites a source who believes the Saints' loss to Seattle actually caused Williams to re-think his potential gains as a head coach elsewhere.

"He didn't feel like he could stand in front of the defense in a team meeting (Tuesday) morning and tell them the things they need to do to win another Super Bowl, and then board a plane to Denver," according to LaCanfora's source.

There's still a good chance that Williams gets another head coaching gig sometime in the future -- but the jokes about his resume taking a hit when the Seahawks bludgeoned his defense during the wild-card weekend perhaps weren't so funny after all.

Speculation is that Dennison, who spent his playing career with the Broncos and then served as offensive coordinator in Denver under Gary Kubiak before replacing Kyle Shanahan in Houston, could be the leader in the clubhouse following initial interviews with Denver, particularly because of his close ties with the organization.

Yeah I've never been sold on Williams. He's had successes and failures as a D coordinator. I gotta say that this is a pretty classy move on his part though. Good for him.

Williams is a great, albeit cranky, coordinator.  He was the coach in Buffalo and I'm not sure he's head coaching material.
He got that gig based on the Tenn defense he formed in the late 90s.  D is his thing and he had a good system in place last year for NO and who knows what next year will bring. 

THEN, the Super Bowl in 2013 will be at the Superdome.  SO now we shall start that "Will the Saints be the first team to play a SB in their own stadium" hoohaa.
