Reports: Health issues forcing Martz out
Posted: 5 minutes ago
Rams head coach Mike Martz has decided to resign due to health concerns, according to multiple radio reports in St. Louis.
Both KMOX and 1380 ESPN Radio reported the move. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's web site, Martz has cancelled his normal Monday press conference and Rams president John Shaw is scheduled to appear at a 5 p.m. news conference instead.
The Post-Dispatch also reported that Martz was back in the hospital, getting treatment for an infection in his heart valve tissue.
Martz was on the sidelines Sunday for the Rams' 38-31 loss to the Seahawks, but has missed time repeatedly this season, including a pair of practices last week. Martz said last week that doctors believe he has endocarditis, a bacterial infection of the heart's inner lining of heart valve.
"This is something that if you let it go, it could become a real issue," Martz told the Associated Press last week.
Martz has been treated with antibiotics and said he felt better during Sunday's game than he had during the week. But evidently, he did not feel well enough to continue as the Rams head coach.
