The Rams are officially cleaning house.
The team announced Monday that G.M. Billy Devaney is out, in addition to coach Steve Spagnuolo.
“I would like to personally thank Steve and Billy for their dedication to the St. Louis Rams organization over the past several seasons,” said Rams owner E. Stan Kroenke in a team statement. “This was a difficult decision for many reasons. We have tremendous respect for Steve and Billy as people and football professionals.”
Unlike Jacksonville, Kansas City, and Miami, the Rams could hire a general manager before finding their next head coach. Or they could hire a head coach that essentially comes with someone who will help pick the players.
Devaney had his ups and downs in St. Louis, but ultimately he had too many misfires in the draft and free agency.
