St. Louis Rams Head Coach Scott Linehan Fired

Scott Linehan Fired

It was only a matter of time before St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan was shown the door out.  It what was a tumultuous week in which Linehan benched starting QB Marc Bulger in favor of Trent Green, it seemed like it became the players versus the coach.  Bulger, a very much liked teammate publicly did not say anything about his benching, but being a competitor, he groused about it behind the scenes, as did many Rams players.  That is until some publicly defended Bulger as game time versus the Buffalo Bills got closer.  WR Torry Holt apologized to Bulger for not making more plays and star RB Steven Jackson told a local radio audience that Bulger was the man and that he did not like the benching at all.  In a game where multi-millionaire players have a lot of say, Linehan was eventually going to be shut down and up.  He leaves the Rams organization with an 11-25 record.  Former New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett takes over as interim head coach.
