Springer, 34, is in his second year as the Rams’ assistant special teams coach, and has worked under two special teams coordinators. Joe DeCamillis was in that spot for the Rams in 2022 but was fired at the end of the season. That year, the Rams ranked 28th in the NFL in overall special teams according to PFF.

The Rams kept Springer but instead of promoting him hired former NFL specialist Chase Blackburn to replace DeCamillis. under Blackburn this year the Rams’ special teams ranked 31st according to PFF.



  • Springers’ position with the Rams is his first NFL job. Prior to 2022 he spent eight years working at various college programs. That started as his alma mater, UTEP, before stops at Texas A&M, Arizona, and Marshall.

    The Springer interview is the third reported coordinator interview for the Patriots on Friday. They’re also speaking to two defensive coordinator candidates – Christian Parker and Michael Hodges.
