Steve Spagnuolo sat down with Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for a very long interview to discuss his time as head coach of the Rams and to look forward to the future. I'd certainly recommend reading the whole thing, but for our purposes, we'll focus on what he said about the future. He didn't mention specific teams, but he did say that the phone has been ringing.

"In all honesty, I don't know," he said. "I was let go on Monday, and today's Friday and I am very blessed in this way. The phone has been ringing. There has been contact (from several teams), but I have asked that everyone respect the fact that I need some time to figure out what I want to do next, and so far, everyone has."

He also said that he won't be taking a year off and will be working next season.

"There are two extremes for what I'd ultimately like to do, and a lot of possibilities in between," he said. "The extremes are (1) sitting out a year, or (2) getting another head coaching job. One is realistic, the other probably isn't very realistic. No one has asked me to be a head coach yet and I'm not saying that is going to happen. But everything in between - like being a coordinator again, or maybe a position coach - yeah, those are both realistic possibilities. Would I think about a college job? No. I love this league too much."

So, if Andy Reid wants him, it just comes down to recruiting him. He wants to coach and he'll have options.
