Rams head coach Jeff Fisher finalized his coaching staff today and named Dave McGinnis as assistant head coach.
Joining McGinnis on the staff include the previously announced hires of Brian Schottenheimer (offensive coordinator), John Fassel (special-teams coordinator) and Chuck Cecil (secondary).
McGinnis was the head coach of the Cardinals from 2000-03 and has 39 seasons of coaching experience. He was with Fisher in Tennessee for seven seasons. Gregg Williams, who was hired as defensive coordinator, was not mentioned in the team’s release. Williams is suspended indefinitely for his role in the Saints’ bounty program. McGinnis is expected to run the defense, along with Fisher, in Williams’ absence.
