St. Louis Rams Offseason Moves: Rams Hire Gregg Williams And Brian Schottenheimer

Confirming reports from Monday morning, the St. Louis Rams have officially announced the hiring of two new assistant coaches:

The Rams finished the 2011 NFL Season with a 2-14 record -- good for second-worst in the league. Shortly thereafter, they fired head coach Steve Spajnuolo and GM Bill Devaney, replacing Coach Spags with long-time Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher in mid January.

Gregg Williams joins Fisher after spending the previous three seasons as the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints. Brian Schottenheimer, the son of former San Diego Chargers head coach Morty Schottenheimer, takes over as the Rams offensive coordinator after serving that same role with the New York Jets for the last six seasons, twice designing offenses that finished in the top 10 in rushing yards.
