The St. Louis Rams hired Nolan Cromwell to coach the wide receivers. Cromwell is a veteran NFL assistant coach and former All-Pro defensive back.

He joins the Rams coaching staff for what will be his 17th NFL season after spending the past two years as the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M. Cromwell spent nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks as the wide receivers coach from 1999-2007. He also spent time with the Packers coaching wide receivers in 1998 and as the special teams coach from 1992-97. Cromwell began his coaching career as a defensive and special teams assistant for the Rams in 1991.

“I am excited to be back with the Rams family,” said Cromwell. “I appreciate Coach Spagnuolo for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to working with the receivers on our roster and the coaching staff.”

Cromwell played at Kansas, starting out as a defensive back his first two years and switching to quarterback as a junior. He set several records as a wishbone quarterback rushing for 1,124 yards in 1975 earning Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year. So he’s a Jayhawk…we won’t hold that against him!!!
