Rams’ coaching staff features new faces, new roles

Opponents have raided Rams coach Sean McVay’s staff this year, hiring away a half-dozen star assistants. It’s a headache McVay seems to have accepted as a price of success – and a chance to radically reshape his sideline roster. The 2021 coaching staff the Rams announced Tuesday features seven new faces, five holdovers with expanded duties, and an array of freshly created job titles. Among the promotions, running backs coach Thomas Brown got the additional title of assistant head coach, a role h...

Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 23rd Edition

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Updating from last week, various people on the NCAA Tournament Committee have further clarified/walked back the idea of using the Pairwise this year to specify that they meant they’ll use it within each conference to determine the rankings of that conference. Which is terrific, but not entirely helpful since, with an exception or two, that’s already pretty easy to do. The real difficulty in this process is going to be de...

Matt Christians/SBN College Hockey It moved! Insight into NCAA for selecting the men’s hockey tournament.

Rams’ Raheem Morris has higher goal for No. 1 defense

The hardest part of Raheem Morris’ new job as Rams defensive coordinator is the most basic. Don’t make Mom mad. A New Jersey native who coached 18 NFL seasons in Tampa, Washington and Atlanta, Morris finds himself waking up in L.A. at 2:30 a.m. while his body clock adjusts, and getting yelled at by his mother for messing up their phone schedule. “By the time you’re ready to call them, they’re asleep,” he said. The rest of Morris’ new life is no easier. Hired Jan. 21 to replace Brandon Staley, Mo...

For Rams’ Aaron Donald, the real Big Game is a year from now

Aaron Donald reminded everyone listening Sunday that he has an all-consuming passion for the Super Bowl. Just, maybe, not for Sunday’s Super Bowl. “I’ll probably watch a little of it, not too much,” the Rams defensive tackle said a few hours before the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicked off at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. “I think it’s going to be a fun game to watch. But if it ain’t me playing in, my team, I don’t care too much about it.” Next year’s Super Bowl, to be played ...

The move, first reported by the NFL Network’s Michael Silver, comes after Rams passing-game coordinator Shane Waldron left to be the Seahawks’ offensive coordinator.

Rams look at Raheem Morris for defensive coordinator role

Veteran NFL coach Raheem Morris has emerged as a candidate for the Rams’ defensive coordinator job left vacant when Brandon Staley was hired as the Chargers’ head coach this week. Morris, who went 4-7 as the Atlanta Falcons’ interim coach after taking over a winless team this season, was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ coach in 2009-11. He was those teams’ defensive coordinator as well as head coach. The Rams asked the Falcons for permission to interview Morris, a Rams source said Tuesday. But a hirin...

Rams report card: Year of improvements leaves room for more

Without a doubt, 2020 was the Rams’ weirdest year under coach Sean McVay. A pandemic was only part of it. The team defied middling preseason expectations, and the headaches of working around COVID-19 and the NFL’s new health protocols, to go 10-6 and win a playoff game thanks mostly to a league-leading defense. But it enters the offseason frustrated by memories of the games it gave away, with questions on the side of the ball where McVay is supposed to have the answers, and facing the challenge ...

A History Lesson

from Stan Fischler at The Hockey News, James Norris was not fooling around that April morning in 1935. The 56-year-old Montreal commerce czar had just bought Detroit’s NHL club – then called the Falcons – and phoned Jack ‘Jolly Jawn’ Adams, the coach-manager he had acquired in the franchise purchase. “I’ll give you a year on the job,” Norris warned him. “You’re now on probation.” Those who knew Norris best translated the “probation” part to mean win a Stanley Cup, pronto, or else....
