    With Brian Schottenheimer (offense) and Gregg Williams (defense) now in place as coordinators, Rams coach Jeff Fisher continues to work on his staff.

    Tim Walton, secondary coach in Detroit from 2009-11, is interviewing Saturday with Fisher for what could be a job as assistant defensive coordinator/passing game.

    Earlier in the week, Fisher interviewed Paul Boudreau, a veteran offensive line coach who has spent the last four seasons with Atlanta. Boudreau was with the Rams in 2006-07, the first two years of Scott Linehan's tenure in St. Louis as head coach.

    Fisher also has interviewed Rob Boras for the tight ends coach position. Boras has been with Jacksonville from 2009-11 as the Jaguars tight ends coach.

    In addition, Tennessee's Dave McGinnis remains a strong possibility for some defensive position or assistant head coach job.


    The hired Brian Schottenheimer on Saturday as their new offensive coordinator.

    According to league sources, it was a close call between Schottenheimer and Hue Jackson. Those sources said Rams head coach Jeff Fisher was impressed with Jackson following their interview earlier this week.

    Schottenheimer, 38, comes to the Rams after six seasons as offensive coordinator with the New York Jets.

    Although there has been no official announcement by the team, the Rams now have both coordinators in place with Schottenheimer on offense and Gregg Williams on defense.
