The St. Louis Rams have asked for and received permission to interview New Orleans Saints assistant coach Aaron Kromer for their head coaching opening, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. Glazer adds that the Rams may interview Kromer in San Francisco while the Saints prepare to play against the 49ers in the postseason this weekend.
Kromer has been with New Orleans since 2008, spending the 2011 season as the Saints' offensive line coach and running game coordinator. He's been a coach for over 20 years, with experience in both college and professional football. Before coaching with New Orleans, Kromer filled a similar role in coaching the offensive line for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At this point, the Rams' coaching search has become a tad chaotic. There are still rumblings that former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher could accept the position, but St. Louis continues to look at other options so clearly nothing is close to being done yet.
