In a chat with Rams fans on Friday afternoon, Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff said that the franchise will start conducting interviews for the vacant general manager position late next week:
The GM search is going to pick up steam next week as we interview candidates beginning Thursday or Friday. We have six to eight candidates we are interested in meeting with who are emerging stars in the personnel world. We will also speak with Les Snead and Lake Dawson again now that Coach Fisher is here.
Demoff added that they "hope to make progress by the Super Bowl," but what exactly he means by that is tough to say. At any rate, it appears that the process is set to speed up in the next week.
