Rams Schedule Press Conference

by: Michael Steffes

The 0-4 St.Louis Rams are heading into their bye week. However, before they do, they seem to have some business to attend to. They have called a 10 AM press conference. This is presumably to announce the already reported firing of head coach Scott Linehan. It is suspected that former Saints head man and current Rams defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will lead the team for the remainder of the season. Things are getting ugly in St. Louis.

UPDATE VIA CHRIS:Fox Sports is reporting that Scott Linehan has been fired after another 0-4 start for the St Louis Rams. Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett will be replacing him.

There was an interesting comment on this site (maybe it was an email, I can't remember). A reader proposed that the Seahawks look into Linehan as a offensive coach on next years staff. He is a local guy, who has a history of doing good things on the offensive side of the ball. Obviously he was ill-equipped to be a head coach, but i thought i would bring this up to stir discussion. How would you feel about Linehan working with the Seahawks in the future? How about the Huskies, where his name is already being mentioned as a possible coaching candidate? Any thoughts? ~END~
