After hiring Frank Cignetti to replace Brian Shottenheimer as the team’s offensive coordinator, the St. Louis Rams are looking to continue to add to their offensive staff. According to NFL Network’s Albert Breer, the Rams have brought in former quarterback Jeff Garcia to interview to be their quarterbacks coach.
Best known for his time with the San Francisco 49ers, the 44-year-old Garcia spent parts of 12 seasons on an NFL roster. After spending the first five years of his career in San Francisco, Garcia also played for the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was signed at the age of 41 by the Houston Texans in 2011, but never saw any time on the field.
Garcia’s only coaching experience came in 2014, when he was the quarterbacks coach for the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL. He has also reportedly worked with Mark Sanchez, Matt McGloin and Tyrod Taylor on developing their mechanics as an NFL quarterback.
Garcia would be a very interesting hire for the Rams, and his job would be far from easy with Sam Bradford, Austin Davis and Shaun Hill as the quarterbacks currently on the Rams’ roster.
