|Rams Fire Coach, GM After Another Dismal Year
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have fired coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney.
The team made the announcement Monday, a day after the team wrapped up a 2-14 season that tied for the NFL's worst.
The Rams made a six-win improvement last season and played for the NFC West title in the finale, but were just 10-38 overall in three seasons with Spagnuolo and Devaney calling the shots. Devaney joined the front office in 2008. In his four years as GM, the Rams were 12-52.
Owner Stan Kroenke fired both men with one year remaining on their contracts, and with fan interest dwindling. The Edward Jones Dome was been about half-filled much of the year.
