The Los Angeles Rams coaching staff and front office got raided this offseason, with teams hiring several key members away from them. In the front office, they lost Brad Holmes, who went from being the Rams’ college scouting director to the Lions’ general manager. Holmes brought along with him to Detroit Ray Agnew, who will be the team’s assistant GM.
The Rams have yet to replace either executive, but Les Snead said on Tuesday that they’ll look to do so immediately from within. He mentioned Ray Farmer, former Browns GM, as a potential candidate to help fill those voids, possibly moving from a consulting role to a full-time job.
“We have a good subset of lieutenants in our building already, so I think initially – and we have Ray Farmer consulting and I’ve talked to Ray Farmer about maybe is it time to get back on the horse full-time. Not necessarily in Brad’s job, but we’ll look to fill it immediately from within, go through the process. At that point in time along the way as we live without two very, very good Rams front office employees, personnel men and just people, figure out where the holes are and what type of skill sets we might add. We’ve got enough people in the building with enough experience that we can get through this successfully.”
Farmer interviewed with the Jaguars this offseason for their GM job, but they ultimately went in a different direction. That’s good news for the Rams because he can help replace Holmes and Agnew, who were key members of the roster-building process.
Snead said they’re going through the process of finding replacements internally, and that the team will announce any moves when they’re made.
