The Rams former head coach has found a new job. Jay Glazer has reported that Steve will indeed return as a coach in the NFL, for the Saints.

This was the best move the Saints could make, after losing Gregg Williams to the St. Louis Rams earlier this week.

Sadly, the Rams don't play the Saints next season, but they will play them in 2013, in what will be an interesting game for sure. But that's too far in the future to talk about now.

Steve Spagnuolo, who didn't exactly leave a mark on the Rams like everyone thought he would when he was hired as the Rams head coach. Say what you want to about Steve, but I always thought he had a nice defensive scheme, and it was obvious that the offense was the problem.

With that being said, Steve getting fired will help the Rams and the Saints. The Rams got their veteran head coach in Jeff Fisher and the Saints get a good defensive coordinator.

After how well the Rams defense played against the Saints offense, I'm surprised this move took this long. Anyway, like always leave comments down below.
