Two down and one to go for the St. Louis Rams. On Tuesday the team interviewed Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron for the second time, which leaves Ron Rivera as the only one of the Rams’ three head coaching candidates who hasn’t had a second interview. Earlier this week the Rams talked to Miami offensive coordinator Scott Linehan for the second time. He’s believed to be the front-runner for the job.
Rivera, who is currently the defensive coordinator for the Bears, saw his defense collapse in a 29-21 playoff loss to the Panthers on Sunday. During the regular season, Chicago was second in total defense in the NFL (281 yards per game) and gave up just 202 points, which was the lowest total in the league.
Former Rams head coach Mike Martz will not call New Orleans home. He was informed on Tuesday that he won’t get the head coaching job with the Saints. Dallas assistant coach Sean Payton will be named the Saints new head coach on Wednesday.
