Rams DC Williams Suspended Indefinitely, Should the Rams Fire Him?

Bam, bam, bam! Roger Goodell just dropped the gavel on the New Orleans Saints and everybody involved in the infamous bounty program.

The league suspended the New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton for the year. Saints GM Mickey Loomis got suspended for eight-games. The team also got fined $500,000 and got stripped of two second-round draft picks in the upcoming drafts.

Gregg Williams – the guy actually running the bounty program and now the St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator – got the short end of the stick. Williams got suspended indefinitely.

What does this mean? Well the Rams now need to find a replacement for Williams, most likely being assistant head coach Dave McGinnis. McGinnis has been a defensive coordinator before and can fill in admirably for Williams.

Another option for the job is the current secondary coach Chuck Cecil. Cecil was Fisher's defensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010 with the Tennessee Titans.

But, with Williams being suspended indefinitely and his return – if he even returns – in question, should the Rams keep him?

Another factor in this dilemma is that we don't know how long Williams will be suspended by the NFL. Even though I highly doubt he will never coach again, I do not think he will be allowed to come back next year.

Note: According to the league, Williams' suspension means he will not be paid in 2012.

So what do you guys say? Should the Rams fire Williams?
