 ST. LOUIS (AP) -The NFL denied the St. Louis Rams' attempt to rework a contract with interim coach Jim Haslett that would ensure him a job beyond this season if he won six games because of a requirement that minority candidates be interviewed for head coaching vacancies.
Team president John Shaw said Saturday in a telephone interview with The AP that the league office cited the Rooney Rule when informing the Rams earlier this week, ``either Tuesday or Wednesday.''
``We gave them the language with the incentive bonus and they said the contract wouldn't qualify,'' Shaw said. ``We were looking for a provision that would ensure him an extension if he won a certain amount of games.''
The Rams have won two straight games under Haslett, upsetting the Cowboys and Redskins, after firing Scott Linehan as head coach after an 0-4 start. St. Louis plays at New England on Sunday.
ges. If the Rams want to hire Haslett as their full-time coach after the season, they'll be required to comply with the rule.
Shaw said the contract was to have served as a motivating factor for Haslett and for the team.
``It's been a very pleasant start,'' Shaw said. ``But it's a long season, so you never know what's going to happen.''
Haslett had been the team's defensive coordinator since 2006, joining Linehan before his first season. This is his second stint as a head coach after he was fired by the New Orleans Saints after the 2005 season.
