Rams bring back ex-safety Cromwell as receivers coach

Four-time Pro Bowl safety Nolan Cromwell is back with the Rams as their wide receivers coach, the team announced Wednesday.

Cromwell replaces Charlie Baggett, who left St. Louis after one season to become assistant head coach and wide receivers coach at the University of Tennessee.

"I am pleased to add Nolan to our staff," Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said in a statement released by the team. "Nolan brings 17 years of coaching experience and experience as an NFL player. He has tutored receivers at Green Bay and Seattle."

Said Cromwell, whose entire NFL playing career (1977-87) came with the Rams when they were located in Los Angeles: "I am excited to be back with the Rams family. I appreciate Coach Spagnuolo for giving me this opportunity, and I look forward to working with the receivers on our roster and the coaching staff."

Cromwell spent the past two seasons as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M. Before that, he coached wide receivers with the Seattle Seahawks from 1999 to 2007.

Cromwell is entering his 17th season as an NFL coach, having also served as the Green Bay Packers' wide receivers coach in 1998 and special teams coach from 1992 to 1997. He began his coaching career as a defensive and special teams assistant with the Rams in 1991.
