With reports swirling that Jeff Fisher will decide his destination soon, the St. Louis Rams are not acting like a team that has its coach in place.
Instead, the Rams are interviewing other candidates, and next in line is Saints offensive line coach and running game coordinator Aaron Kromer.
The Rams have asked for and received permission to interview Kromer and may conduct the interview in San Francisco while Kromer is there coaching the Saints against the 49ers, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports.
Kromer was involved in a screaming match with guard Carl Nicks during the Saints’ loss to the Rams, and there were reports that center Olin Kreutz quit in part because of an altercation with Kromer. Kromer’s no-nonsense approach seems to have worked; the Saints have one of the best offensive lines in the league.
The Saints hired Kromer in 2008 after he had spent three years with the Buccaneers and three years before that with the Raiders.
