Jets DC Gregg Williams says culture beats strategy in NFL

Now running the defense for the Jets under new head coach Adam Gase, Gregg Williams has been a defensive coordinator for many other teams in the league, finding plenty of success across his long career in pro football.

How does he keep getting jobs? By prioritizing team culture over Xs and Os, Williams says (via team reporter Ethan Greenberg):

The reason I keep getting hired is culture. Culture beats strategy any day of the week. It’s about how you find ways yourself to be tougher, how you find ways to play harder, play smarter for longer than any opponent you go against.
