Say it ain't so, Martz on radar for Rams OC, again? Rams coaching update

As of now, officially, Winston Moss and Jim Haslett are the only candidates for the head coaching gig. That's not expected to last though. Because it's wild card weekend, the Rams haven't been able to talk to Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan or Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. After this weekend's games, there's a one week window to contact playoff coaches. 

Steve Spagnuolo and Josh McDaniels are considered out of the Rams price range.

Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was widely believed to be on the short list, but the Rams have made no overtures to contact him while the Titans are on a bye week. I'm starting to suspect that the short list may be just Haslett, Moss, Ryan and Frazier, but all that could change as other teams start to make moves. And, who knows, maybe Rams GM Billy Devaney and Schwartz are familiar enough to forego the formality of a preliminary interview. We'll see. 

Here's a rumor to worry about in the meantime, from Pro Football Weekly:

Word is Haslett already has a well-thought-out game plan in place, should he be retained, that, among other things, calls for two new coordinators. We hear former Rams head coach Mike Martz may be on Haslett’s radar screen for the offensive coordinator job, and he's available after having been fired by the 49ers Tuesday.

Noooooooooo! Actually, I can't imagine the Rams brass letting this happen even if they do take the long shot of bringing Haslett back as head coach; a power struggle wouldn't be on the agenda for team looking to reverse an unfortunate set of circumstances partially put in place by Martz not all that long ago.
