After locking up Dave McGinnis to be the team's assistant head coach, the St. Louis Rams have basically found their main set of coaches. With that, all of their attention and resources will be directed towards finding the team's new general manager.
GM Billy Devaney was fired because the Rams just haven't drafted very well over the past few years. They will now be on the lookout for someone that will be the perfect complement to new head coach, Jeff Fisher. Unfortunately for the Arizona Cardinals, that person might be coming from their own backyard.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Steve Keim, the Director of Player Personnel for the Cardinals, is set to interview with the Rams for the vacant GM job this weekend. Keim has been with Arizona since 1999, working his way up to his current position.
Many (including myself) felt that with Ray Horton getting turned down for the head coaching position, Keim's chances of moving to Missouri would decrease as well. Apparently, that is not the case. The Rams may not only be looking for a solid GM candidate, but also someone with intricate knowledge of one of their NFC West rivals.
So while we wish Keim the best of luck, we also hope that the Rams do not steal away a solid member of the Cardinals' front office.
