The parade of successful offensive coordinators under Jeff Fisher has been littered with glitz and glory and glamour. And don't look know, but it might be moving on to a fourth star!

Yes, Cleveland Browns Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo who oversaw Cleveland's 25th-ranked offense in yardage is meeting with the Rams today. After submitting a request to interview him last week, he offers the Rams' offense a glimmer of hope after finishing dead last in the NFL in yardage in 2015.

DeFilippo has been in NFL circles for a decade with four QB coaching stints preceding his time in Cleveland as the head offensive coach. DeFilippo has worked with such luminary QBs as the ever-reliable Eli Manning, promising young starlet JaMarcus Russell, "Mr. Buttfumble" Mark Sanchez and QB/WR/? Terrelle Pryor.

The Rams fired Offensive Coordinator Frank Cignetti, Jr., mid-season and recently let five more coaches go including three on the offensive side. No word on why Fisher is looking to replace interim OC Rob Boras. Cignetti, ironically, interviewed for the Browns' OC vacancy in January before being promoted from QB Coach to OC himself.
