Former Los Angeles Rams interim head coach John Fassel always wanted to be a special teams coordinator. It seems he will remain in the role.

Here’s what Fassel said to the media when he was about staying in that role after becoming an interim head coach on December 13:

“I can’t say, honestly, that the last five, six, eight years as a special teams coordinator I was coordinating special teams to become the head coach. I can’t say that that was an aspiration. I wanted to be a great special teams coach, and if that’s all I did for the rest of my career, I’d be super happy doing that.”

The Rams do have one of the most impressive special teams units in the NFL.

Fassel is beloved by his players, including star punter Johnny Hekker — who had an interesting tweet about his coach when he heard rumors Fassel would return.
