Rams name Cignetti offensive coordinator
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have promoted quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti to offensive coordinator, replacing Brian Schottenheimer, who left in January to become offensive coordinator at the University of Georgia.
The Rams also announced Thursday that tight ends coach Rob Boras was promoted to assistant head coach for the offense.
The team says Cignetti will call plays. He has been with the Rams for three seasons. Before that he was offensive coordinator for several college programs, most recently Rutgers in 2011.
Coach Jeff Fisher says Boras will help oversee all aspects of the offense but will particularly focus on the running game. He will continue as tight ends coach, too.
