Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo could soon be fired. But while they may be able to take his body out of St. Louis, there’s one fairly important part that will be left behind.
Asked by Anthony Gargano of FOX Sports Radio regarding where Spagnuolo will be in 2012, he said “the St. Louis Rams,” without hesitation.
“That’s where my heart is,” Spagnuolo added. “That’s where my dedication is, and drive. You know, when I came here, this was never about me. . . . I was very blessed to share an experience in New York where we won a Super Bowl and have that ring that everybody’s shooting for. I came here in hopes that the people here would be able to experience that. So what drives me is being able to bring that for other people, and we hope to continue to do that.”
Spagnuolo described the 2011 season in St. Louis as a “bump along the road, or a bunch of bumps.” It remains widely believed that Spagnuolo will bumped off after Sunday, even though John Czarnecki of FOXSports.com has suggested that Spagnuolo could stay and G.M. Billy Devaney could go. In the end, both could go.
And perhaps Spagnuolo will then have that chance to help people in another city experience a Super Bowl victory.
Maybe, unlike St. Louis, a city that has never experienced that.
Maybe, you know, Philadelphia.
