Steve Spagnuolo Update: Rams Set To Fire Both Spagnuolo And Devaney

After exceeding expectations during the 2010/2011 season, hopes were high for the St. Louis Rams entering this season. However, instead of seeing a significant improvement following the 7-9 campaign, the Rams seemed to regress in every way possible, finishing with a 2-14 record. Not surprisingly, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, both head coach Steve Spagnuolo and GM Billy Devaney will not return next season:

@mortreport: Rams will fire coach Steve Spagnuolo and GM Billy Devaney, per team source.

The dismissal of Spagnuolo comes after three difficult years for the St. Louis Rams. Spagnuolo compiled a 10-38 record during his three seasons, with seven of those victories coming last season. The Rams faced significant injuries throughout the season, with offensive players like Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson, Rodger Saffold and Danny Amendola all missing significant time. On the defensive side of the ball, Ron Bartell, Jerome Murphy and Bradley Fletcher all were put on injured-reserve during the season.
