EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. (KMOX) – Suspended St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams made his first public appearance, Friday, since being reprimanded for his part in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.

The 53-year old hosts a charity golf tournament each year in Excelsior Springs, Missouri near where he grew up.

Williams told ESPN.com “I will coach again,” but declined to comment further on his indefinite suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Rams hired Williams to be their defensive coordinator before word of the bounty scandal broke.

Fellow Rams assistant coaches Clyde Simmons and Joe Bowden attended Friday’s golf tournament, as did more than 320 participants.

A source not named in the ESPN.com report said Gregg Williams has used his time off from football to reconnect with family and to re-invent and re-find himself.

Williams previously apologized for his involvement in the bounty scandal.
