The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday the Rams asked for permission to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, but he later decided to stay in Cincinnati for another season. The Rams also will interview first-year Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen this week, a league source told NFL Network's Michael Lombardi.
"I think we've got about six or seven guys who we may ask for permission," Demoff said. "We are doing our due diligence on about 10 to 12 different candidates and making calls and working on general profiles."
While numerous league sources tell NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora they expect Fisher to choose the Rams -- and Demoff said the team remains optimistic -- St. Louis continues to cover all its bases.
As for their general manager search, the Rams completed interviews with Tennessee Titans vice president of football operations Lake Dawson and Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead, according to the team. The Rams had previously interviewed Ryan Grigson, the Philadelphia Eagles' director of player personnel.
