Kevin Demoff said in the Rams press conference that Josh McDaniels was the only assistant coach who has not been fired and that both sides will take time to look at their options and make the best decision for both parties. What this actually means is that the Rams organization isn't set on whether or not to fire Josh McDaniels just yet and they would rather have that decision be left to the new coach and GM. Some reasons to support keeping Josh McDaniels are that he is a guy who has had amazing success in the NFL, but most with the Patriots and Tom Brady, and the offense he constructed in Denver wasn't too shabby. On the other hand, the Rams were easily the worst offense in the league in his first year as coordinator. They scored less than 200 points on the season and at times had very questionable decisions, such as he failure to adequately use Steven Jackson in the red zone. Source: SBNation.com
