STL RAMS.Just reported on a local radio show 590 A.M.They said he will most likely sign by the end of the weekand he is contacting his coaches from N.O. to see who is onboard with the move.As a RAMS fan I am excited with this signing, while he might have been horrible as ahead coach I think he will be a excellent D-COORDINATOR and bring some motivation to the RAMS D (NO DOUBT THEY NEED IT.)

 
LINKHaslett signs on as Rams defensive coordinatorBy John ClaytonESPN.comThe Rams have hired former Saints head coach Jim Haslett to be their defensive coordinator.Haslett agreed to a three-year contract Tuesday morning. Haslett met with head coach Scott Linehan in Miami over the weekend and was offered the job. After thinking about it Monday night, Haslett decided to accept it Tuesday morning.

 
Because he did such a great job with the defense at New Orleans :rolleyes:
Being a head coach is totally different than a coordinator. **** Lebeau is a great example of this. He couldn't do anything right as a head coach but he sure does have the Steelers D looking pretty good right now, doesn't he? Haslett was a very good D-Coordinator for Pitt before he took the job in N.O. No one has done good in N.O and he had a descent couple of years there until this year when he didn't even have a chance. I don't even know if I would call his time spent in N.O. a disaster. They won there first playoff game, made the playoffs ( I believe 2 years out of 5, which for N.O. is pretty good) and was competitive every year, except this last year. I think this is a great hire for the Rams and will be something to watch for over the offseason.

Agreed. I think this guy will have the respect of the players, and he should be able to help out the first year HC immensely. He should be hacked off and wanting to prove that he should be a head coach.I think a very nice hire for the Rams and Linehan ! :thumbup:

:goodposting: and word to your mother.
 
He'll make an excellent assistant. I'm glad he could push ego aside and take a coordinator job. Wish Wannstadt had done that a few years back.

 
STL RAMS.

Just reported on a local radio show 590 A.M.

They said he will most likely sign by the end of the week

and he is contacting his coaches from N.O. to see who is onboard with the move.

As a RAMS fan I am excited with this signing, while he might have been horrible as a

head coach I think he will be a excellent D-COORDINATOR and bring some

motivation to the RAMS D (NO DOUBT THEY NEED IT.)
You should be afraid of this sentence. VERY afraid. As a Saints fan, let me assure you that Rick Venturi, et al (Saints Defensive Coaches) are truly horrific. I'll be interested to see how Haslett pans out in St. Louis. For some reason, despite his defensive background, Haslett refused to address the Saints' gaping holes in the middle of their defense (outside of drafting the collosal bust Sullivan, although you can't put that entirely on Haz). If you all get the gambling, aggressive Haslett on defense, you'll be on to something. If you get the conservative, overcautious Haslett of the last few seasons...good luck to ya.

Without the athletes, coaching means very little, at least at the highest level. Did NO really have that much talent on the defensive side of the ball? Was Haslett the GM as well? If not, you can place the blame where it belongs...

If that's true, then why should an owner ever pony up $$ for a good coaching staff? While talent is important, good coaching and a solid gameplan still matters a helluva lot.
