The Rams are 2-12 and the expectation nationally is that coach Steve Spagnuolo will be let go at the end of the season.
Locally, there doesn’t seem to be a consensus on his future. No one seems sure what owner Stan Kroenke will do.
One scenario, according to FoxSports.com’s John Czarnecki, that Spagnuolo could keep his job while G.M. Billy Devaney might go.
Czar writes that Kroenke is “torn” about what to do. It’s possible that both the coach and Devaney could be let go, but Czar says “If only one goes, Devaney could be it.”
That decision would be fraught with issues. Spagnuolo is entering the final year of his contract. So Kroenke would need to bring him back as a lame duck coach or extend his contract.
Plus, hiring a new G.M. with a coach already in place would create a strange dynamic.
Kroenke was a minority owner in St. Louis when Devaney and Spagnuolo were hired. That also seems to make it more likely that changes will be made. Kroenke has yet to truly make his stamp on the organization since taking over last year.
