"I would like to personally thank Steve and Billy for their dedication to the St. Louis Rams organization over the past several seasons," said Rams owner E. Stanley Kroenke. "This was a difficult decision for many reasons. We have tremendous respect for Steve and Billy as people and football professionals.
"No one individual is to blame for this disappointing season and we all must hold ourselves accountable. However, we believe it's in the best interest of the St. Louis Rams to make theses changes as we continue our quest to build a team that consistently competes for playoffs and championships. We wish Steve, Billy and their families the very best in the future and thank them again for their commitment to our organization and the city of St. Louis."
The Rams are now in full housecleaning mode and immediately start the search for a new head coach and GM.
