Josh McDaniels' decision expected within 24 hours

Following up on last night's post which cited several sources who all believed that the St. Louis Rams would hire Josh McDaniels to fill the offensive coordinator job. It's assumed that McDaniels will make a decision within 24 hours (within 24 hours of Lombardi's report last night, I assume. 

Again, as I pointed out in the post it's not a big surprise. John Clayton was surprised it wasn't a done deal last week. 

What is interesting about the report is that it makes it sounds as though the Rams have already offered McDaniels the job. Lombardi says that McDaniels will make a decision which will "probably" be St. Louis. He interviewed this weekend, but Brad Childress was supposedly going to interview today or tomorrow. 

Last Wednesday, Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune said that Childress was a long shot for the Rams OC job. 

That Chilly is or was scheduled to interview with the Rams means that he is most likely Spagnuolo's backup plan if they can't get McDaniels.
