St. Louis Rams Fire Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo After Three Seasons

As expected, St. Louis has parted ways with their head coach of the last three years, Steve Spagnuolo, as well as their GM Billy Devaney.

The Rams finished 2-14 this season, a disappointment caused by injuries and a general lack of production on both sides of the ball.

Spagnuolo is 10-37 in three years in St. Louis, his only pro head coaching job. It's one year removed from nearly winning the NFC West, but the Rams lost in Week 17 to Seattle.

St. Louis was 1-15 in Spagnuolo's first season, 2009.

Known as a defensive innovator, the Rams finished 12th, 31st and 26th in scoring defense in his tenure. He's largely credited with the defensive front that beat the undefeated Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. While the Rams did lead the NFL with 50 sacks this season, it wasn't enough to save his job.

He will be a hot defensive coordinator commodity, and may even sign with a team for next year - uncommon for terminated head coaches. Philadelphia, a team for which he worked in the past, may have immediate interest.
