Cromwell a candidate to coach Rams receivers

Current Texas A&M offensive coordinator Nolan Cromwell has emerged as a new candidate to be the Rams’ wide receivers coach.

Retired ex-Ram Isaac Bruce has also expressed interest in the position.
Cromwell, 55, is a former All-Pro safety for the Los Angeles Rams.  He also coached on the L.A. Rams’ staff in 1991 as a defensive and special teams assistant.
At Texas A&M, Cromwell has been working under former Packers head coach Mike Sherman.
The Aggies went 6-7 in 2009, losing the Independence Bowl to Georgia by a score of 44-20.

    Florio, you numbskull, prior to all that, Nolan Cromwell was the Packers’ Special Teams coach when they won SB XXXI. How could you forget that? Does the name Desmond Howard ring a bell? Nolan Cromwell has a lot to offer, just was unlucky enough to hitch his wagon to Sherman.

    I just find in strange that you would hire a former safety instead of a former wide receiver for a wide receivers coach position. I’m just sayin…

    Worth noting, Cromwell’s offense at Texas A&M was 5th nationally this year in total offense.

    Ray, I was actually expecting a few more idiots to ask the same question you did but here’s the answer. Cromwell was a monster QB in college. He ran the option. When he first came to the Rams they were always tinkering with ways to get him onto the field offensively.
    Sure, he was an all-pro safety, but he played the majority of his football career on the offensive side of the ball. But seriously, why couldn’t a former DB coach WRs anyways? He would know what makes an effective WR…

    Cromwell was a demon as a Rams player, and very smart. It would be great to see him with the Rams again.
