    St. Louis Rams GM Billy Devaney outlines coach-search process

    St. Louis Rams GM Billy Devaney outlines coach-search process

    During a get-together with reporters Tuesday, Rams GM Billy Devaney outlined the process for selecting the next Rams head coach. Here are the highlights:

    *A three-man committee will screen the candidates. That panel will consist of Devaney, longtime NFL personnel ace Bobby Beathard and Lawrence McCutcheon, former Rams running back and currently the team’s director of player personnel.

    *Marshall Faulk and Dan Dierdorf have agreed to serve as advisers for Devaney. He cited their contacts throughout the league through their media work (Faulk with the NFL Network, Dierdorf with CBS), plus their familiarity with the franchise and his trust in their ability to evaluate possible candidates.

    *John Shaw, who has resigned as Rams president but will be retained as a consultant, will sit in on the final interviews and ask questions.

    *Owners Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez, and perhaps Stan Kroenke, will meet with the finalists and “express their opinion,” Devaney said. “But when it’s over, they’ll let me make the decision.

    Other notes…

    *Jim Haslett already has been deemed a finalist.

    *As reported in Tuesday’s Post-Dispatch, Packers assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss will be interviewed this week.

    *Devaney will consider a college coach only if he’s had experience in the NFL.

    *Experience as a head coach or even a coordinator are not prerequisites.

    All for now . . .

    Sounds good to me. I have to believe if I were in CR's or SK's position, I'd do exactly the same..........be present for everything, even voice opinion, but keep my no-football-knowledge-havin' decisions to myself. That's why I....er, Chip hired Devaney in the first place.
