Report – Pat Shurmur Interviewing for Rams OC?
The Los Angeles Rams have requested permission to interview Pat Shurmur for their offensive coordinator vacancy, per a report.
The Rams, who will be moving to Los Angeles in 2016, have had a revolving door at the offensive coordinator position the last several years and Shurmur could stabilize that position.
Although his future with the Eagles under new head coach Doug Pederson is unknown, Shurmur still could return to the team in some capacity. At his introductory press conference on Tuesday, Pederson said Shurmur remains in the mix as his offensive coordinator.
According to reporter Jason La Canfora, the Eagles are still expected to hire Frank Reich at the coordinator position so Shurmur could be passed over twice by the Eagles organization. Shurmur was also interviewed by the team for it's head coaching vacancy.
Shurmur has ties to the Rams organization, albeit in St. Louis as the offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010, so he is familiar with the inner workings of that franchise. Rams quarterback Nick Foles is also quite familiar with Shurmur as he spent time with him in Philadelphia for two seasons.
Shurmur returning to the Rams would be a "natural move" included in the report.
