Rams Offensive Coordinator Rumors

Update:

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “it’s all but a certainty” that the Rams next offensive coordinator will be an in-house hire.

Thomas mentions that the two candidates to watch are tight ends coach Rob Boras and quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti. Although, Thomas adds that Boras “probably is the frontrunner” at this point in time.

Fisher has promoted from within in the past, so this wouldn’t exactly be a new approach for him.

Yesterday,  former Bills OC Nathaniel Hackett somewhat surprisingly pulled out of the running for Rams vacancy. St. Louis also had interest in Colts assistant Rob Chudzinski, but he elected to re-sign with Indianapolis.

We’ll have more updates regarding the Rams and their offensive coordinator search as the news is available.
