(Sports Network) - The Tennessee Titans will reportedly hire Gregg Williams to their coaching staff once he is reinstated to the NFL by commissioner Roger Goodell.

Multiple reports state Williams, who worked with the Titans franchise as defensive coordinator from 1997-2000, could be brought back before the Super Bowl. ESPN reports the Titans are on the verge of naming Williams an assistant head coach.

Saints coach Sean Payton was reinstated by Goodell earlier this month. Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 season for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal.

Williams, who was the defensive coordinator of the Saints, was suspended for an entire season for similar reasons, but has reportedly been allowed to pursue NFL jobs.

On February 3, 2012, Williams was introduced as the new defensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams. He never had a chance to be in that role for a game though as a month later it was revealed Williams was part of the pay-for- performance bounty program for the Saints.
