Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher has named Michael Groh as the team’s passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach, the Rams announced today. Groh joins the Rams after spending three seasons with the Chicago Bears (2013-2015), and working with quarterback Jay Cutler along with one of the better wide outs in the league in Alshon Jeffrey, who is a free agent this offseason.
“I’m very excited to have Coach Groh join our staff,” Fisher said. “He’s a talented, young coach that has proven himself on the college level as well as in the NFL. We’re looking forward to what he will bring to our offense.”
The Rams could use a boost in the passing game, and it will be interesting to see what direction the Rams go in when it comes to the QB position.
Nick Foles last season wasn’t all that effective, throwing just 7 touchdowns and 10 picks, and he threw just over 2000 yards with a 60.0 QB rating.
It will be up to Groh to infuse some energy into the passing game. Rams fans at least will be able to watch a very good QB in Cam Newton in two weeks in Super Bowl 50 while also taking in 2016 super bowl commercials. Hopefully Groh and the Rams can find a QB like that to lead them into the future if Foles isn’t the long-term answer.
