Black Monday: St. Louis Rams May Fire Steve Spagnuolo After Week 17

With the 2012 NFL Football Season drawing to a close, Don Banks from SI.com takes a look at the 2012 NFL coaching carousel. According to Banks, the St. Louis Rams may in fact not pursue former head coach Jon Gruden, contrary to various reports.

The Rams are currently 2-13 in the 2011 NFL Season, Spanguolo's third season with the Rams. The Rams have won a total of 10 games under his watch and again look poised for a No. 1 or No. 2 draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Banks names long-time Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher as a top candidate for the potentially open position:

For starters, Fisher, the onetime L.A. Rams defensive coordinator and USC defensive back, has been represented for years by veteran agent Marvin Demoff, the father of Rams football operations chief, Kevin Demoff.

Though the Spagnuolo firing is not yet certain, it would appear the Rams have a better chance to hire Fisher instead of both Gruden and Bill Cowher, who both appear partial to remaining in a television during the 2012 season.
