League sources say Rams have talked to Henry Ellard about WR coach job, but no offer has been made. James Lofton also could be in the mix.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) January 24, 2012
Ellard has a long history with the Rams organization, both as a player and a coach. As a player, Ellard spent 11 seasons as a wide receiver for St. Louis and had four 1,000-yard receiving seasons. He finished his NFL career with over 13,000 receiving yards.
As a coach, he worked for the Rams from 2001 to 2008 before moving on to his current position with the New York Jets.
