Monday, September 29, 2008. (AP) -- The winless St. Louis Rams have fired coach Scott Linehan after a fourth straight lopsided loss.
The Rams said Monday that defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will replace him on an interim basis.
Linehan, just four games into his third season, had an overall 11-25 record. Team spokesman Rick Smith says a news conference is scheduled for later Monday.
The move was made heading into the Rams' bye week and several hours after the Buffalo Bills outscored them 25-0 in the second half of a 31-14 victory Sunday.
