View Full Version : Rams Hire Steve Spagnuolo

Reports out of St. Louis were all over the place over the last couple of days, but the Rams have finally landed their man. Adam Schefter is reporting that the Rams have hired Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo as their new head coach.

Per Schefter, it is a four-year, $11.5 million deal.

That leaves the Raiders and Jets as the only NFL teams without head coaches and leaves Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, all rumored to be front-runners for the job at one point or another, to chase other positions or return to their current jobs.

Good hire by the Rams. Should have some pieces to work with and landed in perhaps the NFL's weakest division.

It's funny because yesterday on Dallas Radio, they got hold of a rumor that Jason Garrett and his wife had flown to St. Louis so everyone was assuming that was because he'd gotten the job there. But reporters in St. Louis were saying, "Nuh uh. Jason Garrett isn't even 2nd on the list."

Funny to see the job go to Spagnuolo instead of Garrett. It's almost enough to make me want to listen to Dallas Sports Radio.
