    A Few More Details On Martz

    Martz Taking Indefinite Leave of Absence
    Monday, October 10, 2005

    By Nick Wagoner
    Senior Writer

    With his health worsening, coach Mike Martz is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Rams, President John Shaw announced in a statement Monday afternoon.

    According to Shaw’s statement, Martz will check into the hospital Monday afternoon. Assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt will handle the head coaching duties during Martz’s absence. Offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild will take over play calling duties in the meantime.

    The Rams had Martz’s normal Monday afternoon news conference scheduled for 3 p.m., but that was cancelled at around 1:30 and the team has scheduled a news conference for 5 p.m. to announce the changes.

    Shaw will handle the news conference duties and discuss the alterations of coaching duties for the foreseeable future at 5 p.m.

    As much as I haved mocked MM over the years, this is not how I wished he would leave coaching. Football is a violent sport and career ending injuries are the norm. But all I ever ask for out of the game is a fair, injury free game. Go well Mike.

    Local media is reporting leave of absence, that's what I'll believe until I hear otherwise during this press conference.
