Monday, January 23, 2012
ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Rams have hired Brian Schottenheimer as its new offensive coordinator and Gregg Williams will run the defense.
New Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced the staff additions Monday.
Schottenheimer spent the past six seasons in the same position with the New York Jets. Williams spent the past three years as defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints.
The Rams haven’t had a winning season since 2003, and they had the NFL’s worst offense last season. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels recently left to return to the Patriots.
Fired Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo is taking over the Saints’ defense.
