Rams Coaching Search: Jeff Fisher Hires Titans' LB Coach Dave McGinnis

Jeff Fisher, the St. Louis Rams new head coach, has been busy filling out his coaching staff recently. Over the weekend, news broke that Fisher had hired Paul Boudreau as his offensive line coach and Mike Waufle as his defensive line coach. He may have found his next staff member. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean is reporting that Titans' senior assistant and linebackers coach Dave McGinnis has been hired to join Fisher's staff. He will serve as an assistant head coach.

McGinnis' name came up over the weekend as a very distinct possibility to reunite with Fisher in St. Louis, so this news hardly qualifies as a surprise. His capacity with the Rams would probably be similar to the one he currently holds in Tennessee, with emphasis on his role as a senior level assistant.

The Titans denied Fisher's request to interview Steve Watterson, their strength and conditioning coach, last week. McGinnis' contract with the team has expired.

An eight-year veteran in Tennessee, McGinnis fits with the profile of the handful of other assistants hired by Fisher and the Rams to this point. McGinnis was the head coach in Arizona from 2000-2003. His work in Tennessee with Keith Bulluck and Stephen Tulloch stand out in recent years. From 1986-1995 he was the Bears' linebacker coach.
