ST. LOUIS (AP) -Jim Haslett has been eliminated from consideration for the St. Louis Rams' coaching job.
The interim head coach was 2-10 after being elevated from defensive coordinator when Scott Linehan was fired following an 0-4 start. General manager Billy Devaney said before interviewing candidates that Haslett, a former NFL coach of the year with the Saints, would be a finalist.
``Jim took over an impossible situation,'' Devaney said. ``He kept the team focused and playing hard and, as an organization, we are much better off for his contribution.
``We decided that, after going through the interview process and in the spirit of that process, it was best to let Jim know that we are going to go in a new direction.''
