Paul Ferraro has been hired by the St. Louis Rams and their new coach Steve Spagnuolo (who happens to be Mr. Ferraro’s old college buddy) to be their linebackers coach. Ferraro garnered little but criticism his last year on the job with the Vikes, when the special teams unit he led surrendered an NFL-record 7 touchdowns, but before that the kick-off and punt coverage units were actually pretty solid. We’ll never know now whether Brad Childress would’ve gotten rid of Ferraro otherwise. My guess is no. The insider types say Vikings assistant special teams coach Brian Murphy will likely be promoted. Yes, another former Badger coach in a prominent position on the Purple staff. Will the outrages never cease?
