Steve Spagnuolo Is Fired By Rams, Now Will Next Shoe DropBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Monday, January 2nd, 2012
As expected the St. Louis Rams have fired head coach Steve Spagnuolo. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports was the first to make the report that Rams owner Stan Kroenko had let Spags go. He former Eagles linebacker coach is expected to be one of the hottest defensive coordinator candidates on the market this off season.
He could be headed back to Philadelphia to be defensive coordinator of the Eagles. A week ago a report was made out of San Diego that Spagnuolo would be fired and that he would be brought in by the Birds as their new defensive coordinator.
Andy Reid would talk about Juan Castillo’s job security last night after the game and the Eagles prevented Castillo from talking to the media.
I know that Castillo had the defense going in the right direction at the end of the season, but the Eagles defense was going against Drew Brees and Tom Brady during the stretch. I don’t think you can get too worked up shutting down bums like Rex Grossman.
Spagnuolo has shown that he can do a great job of putting together great schemes for a pass rushing defensive line. He did it so well that he led the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory. I see no reason why he couldn’t work with current Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn. I think Spags could work with the “Wide Nite” and incorporate it into his plan for using the defensive line.
I think bringing Spags back as the team’s defensive coordinator is a no brainer. THEY SHOULD GET IT DONE IMMEDIATELY.
