The LA Rams suffered another defection from their coaching staff, as assistant offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch hired by New England Patriots
The LA Rams are up two coaches so far this off-season. But with today’s defection, the team has parted ways with four coaches. The latest rumored defection involves assistant offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch hiring on with Bill Belicheck and the New England Patriots.
The Rams have been somewhat under the radar so far in terms of filling coaching staff. Prior to the end of the 2019 season, there were plenty of NFL Rumors regarding the team’s intentions to part ways with then defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Shortly thereafter, the team announced the release of running back coach Skip Peete. Shortly thereafter, the Dallas Cowboys announced hiring a special teams coordinator John Fassel, who had done well in a similar capacity for the Rams.
Losing Fisch is another depletion of the Rams coaching staff. While he had only been with the team for two seasons, Fisch had an impressive resume of working with quarterbacks and receivers at the college and pro level. He helped develop Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, UCLA’s quarterback Josh Rosen. Over the span of his 14 years coaching, Fisch has worked for and with collegiate and NFL head coaches alike, including Steve Spurrier, Dom Capers, Brian Billick, Mike Shanahan, Pete Carroll, Gus Bradley and Jim Harbaugh.
Fisch had signed on with the Rams in 2018, originally as senior offensive assistant. Through 2019, he filled out the offensive coordinator responsibilities which head coach Sean McVay did not have time to address.
