Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Rams owner Stan Kroenke plans to fire head coach Steve Spagnuolo after the season. According to Union-Tribune, it is “all but certain” that Spagnuolo will join Andy Reid’s staff as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator.
Acee writes that Kroenke plans to bring in Chargers’ current GM A.J. Smith, who is likely to be fired by San Diego after another underachieving season. Smith is then expected to hire Jon Gruden as his head coach in St. Louis. Acee’s sources said that Gruden plans to return to coaching in 2012 and ESPN – Gruden’s current employer – is aware of and prepared for the move.
