    Interesting tidbit of information

    While watching a re-run of the Rams-Titans Superbowl tonight on the NFL Network, Al Michaels said that Dick Vermeil was actually the Rams FIFTH CHOICE for Head Coach in 1997. Their preferences (in order):

    1. Bobby Ross- went to Detroit, then San Diego
    2. Pete Carroll- went to New England, then of course to USC
    3. Kevin Gilbride- wound up as a defensive coordinator ( I think jacksonville at the time)
    4. Jim Mora
    5. Dick Vermeil

    Funny how sometimes you can luck into a good hire despite other intentions. I also found this an interesting side-bar to the "greatest Rams head coaches" thread elsewhere on the board.

    I never looked into Carroll, one of the greats at USC. I never knew he had such a background. (wikipedia) Thanks for the info!
