An announcement on the future of St. Louis Rams coach Scott Linehan's status is expected Monday, according to two sources close to the organization. Although Linehan has yet to be told if he'll be kept after the Rams fell to 0-4 and lost their eighth straight game, he is expected to meet with owner Chip Rosenbloom on Monday morning with the belief by both sources that he will be let go.
The Rams lost to Buffalo 31-14 Sunday after leading 14-6 at halftime.
Linehan, who was hired in 2006 to succeed Mike Martz and bring in his offensive scheme, has struggled to rebuild the once-great Rams offense. Last week, Linehan benched quarterback Marc Bulger in favor of Trent Green and received criticism for the move from running back Steven Jackson.
Overall, Linehan is 11-25 with the Rams. He was hired after spending four seasons as an offensive coordinator with Minnesota and Miami. In his first four years in the NFL, Linehan developed a reputation as an aggressive play caller in the passing game. The Rams offense has struggled since the beginning of the 2007 season because of constant injuries along the offensive line.
