The New Orleans Saints had a bounty system in place during past seasons, and now the league is making the coaches involved with it pay in a big way.

Gregg Williams, the defensive coordinator who reportedly handed out payment for his players injuring opponents, has been suspended indefinitely. Williams was set to join the St Louis Rams as their defensive coordinator as Jeff Fisher takes over as their new head coach.

Sean Payton lead the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl victory a couple seasons ago, but he will not have the opportunity to do the same this year, as he has been suspended for the entirety of the season.

The Saints have reportedly been fined, to include a monetary sum of $500,000 and a 2nd round draft pick in 2012.

It’s being speculated that Steve Spagnuolo will take the helm for the season in New Orleans. Spagnuolo previously held the position of Head Coach for the St Louis Rams before being fired this past off-season.

As of yet there’s no word who will take Gregg Williams’ place as defensive coordinator of the St Louis Rams.
