All Rams assistants have been told they are free to seek other employment @nflnetwork— Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) January 2, 2017
Per NFL Network and Friend of Jeff Fisher, Mike Silver, the Rams have allowed all of their assistants to seek other employment. While the season was a disaster, it looks like the Rams will give the next coach a chance at picking their own guys. Sadly, this may be the end of Coach Fassel’s tenure with the Rams, ending a five year period of good special team plays including surprises, consistency, and positivity compared to the rest of the team.
Would think Rams at least would consider hanging onto ST coordinator John Fassel and DL coach Mike Waufle https://t.co/95645qi45I— Joe Curley (@vcsjoecurley) January 2, 2017
Personally, I would love to see the next Rams coach keep Fassel and maybe even Waufle, the Rams DL coach who has watched Quinn, Brockers, Donald, Hayes, Easley, and others succeed under his tutelage. While the Rams are doing the right thing by allowing everyone to get outside opportunities if there is interest, one must wonder if the new coach would like to keep a couple of things in the building consistent from the previous regime.
Buckle up, it’ll be an interesting coaching search.
