Report: Patriots interviewing Rams assistant for special teams coach

Los Angeles Rams assistant special teams coach Jeremy Springer is expected to interview for the special teams coaching job with the New England Patriots.

This was reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Springer had a difficult season with the Los Angeles Rams last year. The special teams unit was the worst in football. Nevertheless, some of his other coaching stops have been more successful.

Prior to his work with the Rams, Springer also served on Marshall’s coaching staff. He also worked at Texas A&M and UTEP, gathering experience in the collegiate ranks.

The Patriots have already seen staff shake-ups this week. Most notably, Bill O’Brien left to become the offensive coordinator at Ohio State on Thursday.

Along with Springer, the Patriots also set up interviews with New Orleans Saints linebackers coach Michael Hodges and Denver Broncos defensive backs coach Christian Parker.

It has been a busy week in New England, and things aren’t likely to slow down anytime soon with Mayo still looking to lock a coaching staff in place.
