New York Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams love the energy that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams brings.
The Jets hired Gregg in January of this year, and after Spring workouts, the defensive lineman is already praising his new coach.
Leonard notes the quality of Gregg’s energy.
“I love his style,” Leonard told Olivia Landis of the team’s website. “He flies around with a bunch of energy, and he’s really enthusiastic. One person I compare him to all the time is Coach (Ed) Orgeron, just because he was one of my favorite coaches, growing up and in college. The reason he was one of my favorites is because he was so fired up all the time that it brought the fire out of me. When I see my coach fired up, I’m like, ‘Yeah, let’s go!’ It’s cool to see that out of Gregg, too.”
Orgeron was Leonard’s defensive line coach during his time at the University of Southern California.
The Pro Bowl defensive lineman racked up 42 combined tackles, 11 tackles-for-loss, and five sacks through 16 games last season.
