Steve Spagnuolo Fired By St. Louis Rams

The St. Louis Rams fired head coach Steve Spagnuolo early Monday morning, wasting little time getting to what has been considered inevitable for weeks. The firing was reported first on Monday by Fox's Jay Glazer and confirmed later by local sources. Despite a report late Sunday night that both Spagnuolo and GM Bill Devaney were going to be let go, there has been no official word yet on the fate of Devaney.

Spagnuolo will leave the Rams having gone 10-38 as the team's head coach. In 2010, the team went 7-9 and narrowly missed the playoffs, but that season was sandwiched by ones in which the Rams finished 1-15 and 2-14. The 2011 season was especially disappointing, with the Rams widely considered to be the favorites to win the NFC West.
