Ram to fire Spagnuolo

The move could be announced as early as Monday and no later than Tuesday.

Spagnuolo was just 10-38 in three seasons in St. Louis.

The Rams lost 34-27 to the rival 49ers on Sunday to finish the season 2-14, tied with the Indianapolis Colts for the worst record in the NFL.

The lowly mark was an even bigger embarrassment considering it followed a six-win improvement last season. Attendance at Sunday's regular-season finale was announced as 55,990, about 9,000 shy of capacity at the Edward Jones Dome, but the stadium appeared no better than half-full and drained quickly in the second half.

Spagnuolo still talked optimistically about offseason plans after Sunday's loss and never fretted that this could have been his final game.

"I don't go there. I think you know me well enough," Spagnuolo said. "In the middle of that game, in the fourth quarter as exciting as it was? Nah."

I actually think that would be the wrong move. They have a lot of pieces in place and I just think he needs a littl emore time. Look at Cohwer with the Steelers, took him quite some time to get it done but it eventually paid off for the Rooneys.

I always feel a little bad for the coaches getting fired, not so much the Headcoaches because they are well paid and can most always get some other job coaching, but it usually means the rest of the staff gets fired too and for unknown assistants that can be a hard blow.
