Rams Hire Rutgers' Frank Cignetti As QB Coach, Per Report

The St. Louis Rams hired Frank Cignetti as their quarterbacks coach on Tuesday, according to a report.

The St. Louis Rams have hired a quarterbacks coach. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, the Rams have hired Rutgers offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, Jr. to fill the position last held by Dick Curl in 2010.

Cignetti has been a quarterbacks coach in the NFL before, with the Saints in 2000-2001 and then with the 49ers in 2007. He was considered a candidate to replace Greg Schiano, who left to take the head coaching job in Tampa Bay, but was passed over for Mario Cristobal.

Many thought he would end up in Tampa with Schiano as the Bucs' offensive coordinator.

The Rutgers offense leaned heavily on the run under Schiano and Cignetti.

The Rams took heat for not hiring a quarterbacks coach last season, when Sam Bradford was learning a new offense on short notice. Why they decided not to hire a specific position coach for Bradford is unknown. It proved to be a fateful decision.

Cignetti fills one of the few remaining assistant jobs. Head coach Jeff Fisher said during his Super Bowl media appearances that he hopes to have the coaching staff in place by the end of the week.
