    Rams Give Scott Linehan New Title

    Bernie's Grits
    January 10, 2008

    The Rams have announced that they have changed Scott Linehan's title for the 2008 season to Interim Head Coach.

    "Its really about being up front and truthful in our job titles," John Shaw explained. "Everyone knows that this is almost certainly the last year that I, Jay Zygmunt and Scott Linehan will be with this franchise. In 2009, everything will change."

    Insiders have expressed concern that this open admission of the temporary status of the current regime will deter top quality assistant coaches and, possibly, free agents from joining the Rams this offseason.

    Shaw addressed that as well, stating "not my problem."

    Looks like we might be in for a very long season in '08. "not my problem" wow. just wow. I have been at jobs I knew I was leaving, but that drove me to work even harder so no one would say "Your leaving, you don't care." I guess if they are retiring they do not care what future employers might think, but aren't they at all concerned about their legacy? Obviously not, what am I thinking? gorams

    Good one BernieM. Behind the humor there is probably a more reality to your post than any of us know.

    Do you have anything to reference that will support this drastic news?

    Not sure what you are looking for. This was based on my most recent interview with Shaw.

    Interestingly, there was more to our conversation. At one point, he sounded a bit choked up and said "after I leave, we'll still be friends, right Bern? I mean, I hope we can still hang out." I don't think he meant anything by it, but it was a little creepy. I think he's just a sad, lonely old man who's afraid that he's about to lose his favorite toy.

    What, pray tell, do those words and definitions have to do with this thread, Hub?

    My apologies, I didn't realize that you had interviewed the man.

    I was kind of hoping that his new title would be "Assistant to the Assistant Waterboy".

    My friend, I believe it was Vincent Van Gogh who said, "How to achieve such anomalies, such alterations and re-fashionings of reality so what comes out of it are lies, if you like, but lies that are more than literal truth."

    He did say that.

    He also said: "What? I didn't catch that. Could you speak into my good ear?"

    Shaw also confirmed the Rams' interest in Art Vandelay for offensive line coach.

    His true calling is latex sales.
