Rams hire McDaniels as offensive coordinator
ST. LOUIS — A day after hiring former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels as offensive coordinator, the St. Louis Rams are losing quarterbacks coach Dick Curl to retirement.
Curl was with the Rams the last two seasons, also carrying the title of assistant head coach, and aided in the development of rookie Sam Bradford.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo said today he wasn’t sure whether there would be a replacement for the 70-year-old Curl, or whether McDaniels would take on that role when he replaces Pat Shurmur, who was hired as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. McDaniels’ brother, Ben, was quarterbacks coach in Denver this season.
“Josh and I are going to talk about that,” Spagnuolo said. “We really didn’t have that discussion because this is fairly new, but when he gets here we’ll talk about it.”
