Williams interviews for Redskins job

Gregg Williams was interviewed for the Washington Redskins' head coaching vacancy Saturday, according to sources with knowledge of the situation, while numerous NFL executives and agents continue to say they believe he is the favorite to get the position the Washington Post reported.

Williams, Washington's assistant head coach-defense, spent the past four years on Joe Gibbs's staff and has strong support from players and coaches at Redskins Park.

The Redskins would like to interview two coaches still involved in the playoffs — Indianapolis's Jim Caldwell (offense) and Ron Meeks (defense), according to a source with knowledge of the situation — and will ask for permission to contact both. But they are not eligible to interview until the Colts' season ends, or, should Indianapolis reach the Feb. 3 Super Bowl, until the bye week before that game.
