Jeff Garcia To Interview For Rams QB Coach Job (UPDATED)

With a QB coaching vacancy left by recently promoted Frank Cignetti, the Rams are bringing in a well-known former QB to interview for the position.

Well this interesting.

Yes, that's former 49ers (as well as Browns, Lions, Eagles, Buccaneers, Raiders, Eagles and Texans) QB Jeff Garcia. He spent 2014 as the Montreal Alouettes QB coach, finishing the circle of life back to the Canadian Football League where he started his professional career with the Calgary Stampeders for five years back in the 1990s.

Now the relevant guesswork here would be toward the Rams' intentions. Would he be coming in to mentor Sam Bradford or someone with a skill set closer to his own, a someone who obviously isn't on the Rams' roster? For a coach who has so little experience, is he being brought on less for his coaching experience and more for his playing experience that relates closer to a prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft than Bradford?

Speculation. Nothing more. But for perhaps the most interesting name involved in the re-staffing of the offensive side, it's worth considering.

Speculation, indeed.
