ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the St Louis Rams “plan” to hire Lions defensive backs coach Tim Walton as their next defensive coordinator.
Walton has been with the Lions since 2009 and previously worked as the defensive coordinator for the University of Memphis.
The Rams have taken their time in regards to their coordinator search. It appeared as though Rob Ryan was going to get the job before the two sides decided against the move. Former Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron was also in the running for the job.
