Zygmunt Ready to Step Down Sources Say

From: St.Louis Post Dispatch

An announcement on Jay Zygmunt’s resignation is imminent, according to Rams team sources. Zygmunt is the Rams president of football operations-general manager and has worked in some capacity with the organization for 27 seasons. Even if it doesn’t come today, team sources said it will definitely come at some point this week.

It is expected to be the first of several moves that will result in a major restructuring of the Rams’ front office. Billy Devaney, the team’s executive vice president of personnel, will receive a new title and broader powers in the organization. And John Shaw, who has been with the club for 29 years, is expected to relinquish his team president title while remaining with the club as a consultant to ownership, particularly owner and chairman Chip Rosenbloom.

  1. Jeff Roman says:

    Zygmunt’s retirement will set off many changes in the Rams front office. John Shaw will also take a reduced role in the front office, possibly as an advisor to Chip Rosenbloom, the owner.

    Billy Devaney, the Director of Pro Player personnel will more than likely take over as GM. Unless the Rams take a run at Scott Pioli, the two-time winner of executive of the year and New England Patriots Director of Pro personnel. It is unlikely that Pioli will budge without the perfect situation in which he has complete say over the whole team. The Rams are not that situation. The Browns and even the Lions are in better position to attract Pioli.

    Good riddance, Jay Zygmunt.

    Out with the old has begun. I can’t wait for the “in with the new” portion of the Rams reshuffling.
