The St. Louis Rams fired offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti and promoted assistant head coach Rob Boras to run the offense in his stead as an interim.
Team insider Myles Simmons broke the news Monday afternoon.
Rams have relieved offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti of his duties. Assistant head coach/offense Rob Boras will take over as OC.

The team’s offense had suffered through a miserable five-game stretch (all losses), generating an average of less than 11 points per game. Things got even worse the past couple of games, thanks in part to the dismal play of quarterback Nick Foles, when the Rams scored just 10 points total against the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals.
In addition to a flagging passing game, rookie running back Todd Gurley also saw his production fall off a cliff during this losing streak, and the offense had little to offer towards victory.
Regardless of any coaching changes made right now, the entire staff could potentially be gone after the season. Jeff Fisher’s been in the news for all the wrong reasons this year and recently told reporters to “kiss my *ss” when he was asked about effort potentially being a problem for his team.
It might get worse before it gets better, Rams fans.
