Jeff Fisher Hires Chuck Cecil as Rams Defensive Backs Coach

New, comments

Yesterday it was announced that Jim Schwartz had hired Marcus Robertson to be a secondary coach with the Detroit Lions. I had figured Robertson would end up back with Jeff Fisher. Well today we learned why because Jeff Fisher has hired Chuck Cecil to be his defensive backs coach according to John Glennon.

Cecil was a terrible defensive coordinator. There is no doubt about that, but he was a pretty good defensive backs coach. There is no reason to think that he won't be good with the Rams.

I am really interested to see how quickly the Rams defense gets turned around. Their staff now looks very similar to staffs here when the Titans had dominating defenses. Of course Jevon Kearse and Albert Haynesworth aren't walking through that door (I guess they could sign Fat Albert).
