St. Louis Rams Fire Head Coach, General Manager: Recapping The News Of The Day

Its official: Steve Spagnuoulo and Billy Devaney have been fired by the St. Louis Rams after a disappointing 2-14 season.

Kevin Demoff, the Rams' Executive Vice President of Football Operations & Chief Operating Officer, held a press conference announcing their releases.

Taking over personnel decisions and scouting in the interim will be Vice President of Player Personnel Mike Williams.

The organization has a short list of possible candidates for both the GM and head coaching positions, but they haven't scheduled any interviews. Former Rams head coach Dick Vermeil and Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk have been recruited to help on the selection process.

As far as the coaching staff goes, all will be gone by February, when their respective contracts end. The only exception is Josh McDaniels - he is under contract through next year. Both McD and the Rams will take their due diligence to peruse their options. At the end, the new head coach will be deciding on his coaching staff.

It's been a busy day, worthy of a look back at all that happened.
