The Rams are interested in talking to John DeFilippo about making the move from Cleveland to become their offensive coordinator and he’ll likely be able to bring in some of his own hires to fill out the staff should he take the job.

The team announced that they will not renew the contracts of five coaches, three of whom were on the offensive side of the ball. They are running backs coach Ben Sirmans, wide receivers coach Ray Sherman and offensive assistant Jeff Garcia. Sherman and Sirmans were both on the staff for four years while Garcia, who worked with Sherman, was in his first year on the staff.

Offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti was fired by the Rams during the season and replaced by Rob Boras, who had been the assistant head coach and tight ends coach. While the team has shown interest in DeFilippo, it’s also a possibility that Boras will hold onto the job into next season.

The Rams also let assistant special teams coach Paul F. Boudreau go after four years with the team. His father, Paul T. Boudreau, is the team’s offensive line coach. Assistant strength and conditioning coach Adam Bailey was the fifth coach pared from the staff on Wednesday.
