USA Today’s Tom Pelissero is reporting the Los Angeles Rams will make Aaron Kromer their next OL coach:
Aaron Kromer is here in Mobile with the #Rams contingent. He's going to be their offensive line coach.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 24, 2017
Kromer has a long resume in the NFL going back to 2001 with OL coaching stints with the Oakland Raiders (2002-04), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006-07), the New Orleans Saints (2009-12) and most recently the Buffalo Bills (2015-16). He had a couple other gigs on and off in between, most notably the two-year run he had as offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears in 2013 and 2014 under then Head Coach Marc Trestman who has been rumored to be in the running for the Rams’ offensive coordinator spot.
Kromer’s early NFL work came under Jon Gruden during his time as head coach in Oakland and Tampa Bay. Gruden has reportedly advised the Rams this offseason on their coaching hires prior to the announcement that they were hiring Sean McVay to be their next head coach.
Interestingly enough, the Rams reportedly interviewed Kromer for their head coach vacancy in 2012 that was ultimately filled by Jeff Fisher.
