    Linehan loses assistant Holt to USC

    By Bill Coats
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Tuesday, Feb. 07 2006

    Just when he thought he had his staff in place, new Rams head coach Scott
    Linehan suddenly has an unexpected opening.

    Nick Holt, who had resigned as head coach at the University of Idaho to become
    Linehan's defensive line coach, did an about-face Tuesday. A day after his
    appointment to the Rams' staff was announced, Holt accepted the defensive
    coordinator's job at the University of Southern California.

    Holt and Linehan, both 42, have been friends for years. They coached together
    at Idaho and at Louisville. Holt told reporters in Idaho that he turned down
    Linehan's first offer to come to St. Louis about two weeks ago but changed his
    mind over the weekend. "It's an opportunity I just couldn't turn down," he said.

    But Holt changed his mind a second time and decided to join another former
    colleague, Pete Carroll, at USC. Holt was the Trojans' linebackers coach for
    three years before taking the head-coaching job at Idaho in 2003. His Vandals
    teams went 5-18 over two seasons.

    Attempts to reach Linehan and Holt were unsuccessful.

    Is Larry Brooks available? (don't know if he was retained by new coach in Detroit)

    Anyway...

    I suppose that if this were an article in the New York Post, the headline would read:

    Holt's Bolt Gives Rams A Jolt!

    Never mind about Brooks. He was hired by the Cardinals.
