Haslett Gives Some Interesting Opinions On the Rams Letting Him Go

Former Rams coach Jim Haslett led the team to two quick wins last year after taking over for Scott Linehan, but then things quickly fell apart, and Haslett was let go at the end of the season. Haslett spoke to the St.Louis Post-Dispatch about being let go, and had some interesting things to say about the Rams and Billy Shaw:

For most of his coaching career, things came easy for Jim Haslett. He became an NFL head coach after just seven years in the league as an assistant. He was the NFL’s coach of the year in 2000 as a rookie head coach of the New Orleans Saints. Even after he lost his job in New Orleans in the aftermath of the brutally tough Hurricane Katrina season, he didn’t have to look for work.

Teams came looking for him.

But the phone didn’t ring last January when the Rams decided they wouldn’t retain Haslett after his 2-10 run as interim head coach. At the Senior Bowl, he was almost non-communicative. For the first time in his life, he wasn’t sure about his next job.

But the feisty coach known as “Haz” has bounced back. He’s back in coaching, albeit in the fledging United Football League. And he’s getting on with his post-Rams life.
