Rams Fire Scott Linehan, Hire Jim Haslett as Interim Head Coach

Filed under: ,

Scott Linehan has been fired as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams, and Jim Haslett has been hired as his replacement on an interim basis.

The firing was made early this morning, according to multiple media outlets. Adam Schefter of NFL Network reported that Haslett will get the top job.

After the Rams lost to the Bills yesterday, everyone -- including Linehan himself -- expected the firing to come today. The Rams are off to an 0-4 start and are almost universally regarded as the worst team in the league.

Linehan's two-plus seasons as Rams head coach ends with an 11-25 record. Haslett, who has been the Rams' defensive coordinator throughout Linehan's tenure as head coach, had a 46-52 record as head coach of the New Orleans Saints from 2000 to 2005.
