Report: Denver Broncos will ask permission to interview Gregg Williams

By Cindy Boren

The Denver Broncos reportedly will ask the New Orleans Saints for permission to interview defensive coordinator Gregg Williams for their vacant coaching position.

Woody Paige reports that Williams, who re-energized the Saints' defense and formerly was Redskins' designated heir apparent under Joe Gibbs, is among those who'll interview with John Elway, who started work today as the Broncos' executive vice-president of football operations.

Elway attended the Orange Bowl, but said he didn't speak to Stanford Coach Jim Harbaugh about the Denver job. Harbaugh reportedly is talking to the San Francisco 49ers today about their vacant job.

"I did mention ...," Elway said via the Broncos' Twitter feed, "if he decided that if he wanted to make a jump to the NFL, that the Denver Broncos would be interested."

The Broncos are expected to interview Eric Studesville, their interim coach, and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey. In addition to Williams, they'll interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell on Sunday.
