Williams reverses, won't interview with Broncos

On the same day and same hour that one Louisiana coach reportedly decided to stay, another one announced the same.

Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has reversed course, deciding to decline the Broncos' request to interview him for their vacant head coaching position.

Meanwhile in Baton Rouge, LSU coach Les Miles has reportedly decided to stay, and not leave for the University of Michigan job.  Both pieces of news broke within minutes of eachother.

The Broncos faxed an official request to interview him on Monday, and John Elway, the Broncos' vice president of football operations, confirmed that Williams will interview on Wednesday.  The Saints could technically not refuse permission.

On Tuesday, Williams changed his mind, and won't go to Dove Valley, CO to interview.

Sean Payton said in his final press conference on Monday that the entire coaching staff is under contract at least through the next season, and that the plan is to retain the entire coaching staff.
