Rams Searching For Offensive-Minded HC

The Rams will begin their hunt for a new head coach on Friday, and the club’s decision-makers prefer to hire a coach with experience on the offensive side of the ball, a source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. However, Los Angeles isn’t completely against hiring a coach with a defensive background.Josh McDaniels (vertical)

Following the Rams’ firing of Jeff Fisher, PFR’s Zach Links examined the top potential candidates for the Los Angeles job, and several offensive coaches made the list. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels — who has indicated that he’s interested in pursuing a head coaching position again — is sure to be linked to the vacancy, and fits the club’s criteria given his experience with Tom Brady and the rest of the New England offense. Stanford head coach David Shaw, Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan, Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter, and Redskins OC Sean McVay are among the other possible suitors for the Rams opening that have coached offense.

The Rams’ “wide-ranging” search is expected to begin on Friday, per Florio, while Los Angeles COO Kevin Demoff said earlier this week that the club would like to have a new hire in place by mid-January.

    • Kia Sportage Off-roader

      You have to visit in person and fill out an application Todd! If you want to ride in style from Pittsburgh to LA, there’s no better way than in a Kia. Heck, hop in a Sorento or a Sportage and drive the back roads to California. You know you will never get stuck in a Kia and they will last far beyond 400k and go over 20 years before rust is ever an issue.

  1. None of these named listed would make LA happy ??? LA needs a superstar hire a SUPERSTAR hire, a personality , Carroll is not Coming , Harbaugh not coming only one left on the Wish List …. Jon Gruden I don’t care if he casts 12 million a season LA is not going to buy PSLs if the Rams blow it and make one of these guys the coach they deserve to fail!

  2. First Demoff has to check with his father to see what other head coaches his dad might have available.

  3. The Rams need to dump COO Demoff and bring in a real football mind to run one of the worst organizations in sports. The Rams are the laughingstock of the NFL and that’s including the Cleveland Brown Bags. They need an overhaul of the whole organization and should start with the correct front office personnel. And I personally would start with Michael Lombardi as the new COO. He’s one of the sharpest guys to have ever worked in the NFL and he’s learned his craft from a number of NFL LEGENDS. They need to stop taking about hiring an offensive minded head coach and start to hire some leaders who will hire the right DC and OC. Get rid of the retreads! It amazes me that delusional Jeff Fisher is still making boneheaded statements while being interviewed about being fired by the Rams. He was the worst hire in the history of the Rams franchise.
