Sports log: Titans interested in hiring Gregg Williams

FOOTBALL

Gregg Williams may be a step closer to returning to the NFL after being suspended indefinitely for his role in the New Orleans Saints’ bounty program. Tennessee coach Mike Munchak has talked with Williams and is interested in adding him to his Tennessee staff, said a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke Sunday to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Titans do not discuss personnel moves until they are finalized. Before the Titans could hire Williams, he must be reinstated by the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him indefinitely for his role in the bounty program, and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league has not yet addressed Williams’s potential reinstatement. Williams was the Saints’ defensive coordinator from 2009-11 and was hired by St. Louis in January 2012 by former Titans coach Jeff Fisher before being suspended indefinitely in March 2012. Williams coached with the Titans franchise from 1990-2001 . . . Philadelphia tackle Todd Herremans recently had foot surgery, according to CSN Philly. Herremans reportedly needed the surgery after he developed an infection. His season ended when he dislocated a bone in the foot in November . . . St. John’s Prep senior Alex Moore, the Globe’s Division 1 Player of the Year, has committed to the University of Pennsylvania. Moore helped lead St. John’s to the Division 1 Super Bowl title and was named Massachusetts Gatorade player of the year. The running back/safety amassed more than 1,300 yards of offense, scored 19 TDs, and intercepted four passes.
