Rams Considering Ray Sherman For Assistant Coaching Position

The St. Louis Rams continue to hire their coaching staff. The head coach and his coordinators are in place, and the work is now focused on filling out the rest of the assistant vacancies. Former Dallas Cowboys receivers coach Ray Sherman is now said to be one possibility for the Rams' staff, according to a Thursday report.

Sherman coached with Fisher in Tennessee for two seasons, 2005 and 2006. He joined the Cowboys in 2007, and worked their until 2010.

Earlier in the week, there were reports that the Rams were considering franchise great Henry Ellard, the Jets' receivers coach, to coach receivers in St. Louis. James Lofton was also mentioned as a possibility.

Sherman has a lengthy resume of coaching experience, especially on the offensive side of the ball. He was the offensive coordinator for the Jets in 1994, the Steelers in 1998 and the Vikings in 1999. He's also been a running backs coach.

His experience level fits with Fisher's other hires among assistants thus far. In fact, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of Sherman being considered as an offensive senior assistant rather than a position coach, similar to the hire of Dave McGinnis for the defense.
