ST. LOUIS (Feb. 6, 2006) -- The St. Louis Rams added nine coaches to their staff, including Idaho coach Nick Holt.

The 43-year-old Holt, who worked with new Rams coach Scott Linehan at Idaho, will be the defensive line coach. Holt was 5-18 in two seasons as head coach of the Vandals.

It's Holt's first NFL job after 15 seasons as a college coach at Southern California, Louisville and Idaho.

Following Linehan from Miami is Judd Garrett as tight ends coach.

Former New Orleans Saints coach and new Rams defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will be joined by two coaches from the Saints. Rick Venturi, a longtime NFL veteran, was named the Rams' assistant head coach and linebackers coach. Willy Robinson will join the Rams as secondary coach after one season in New Orleans.

Ron Milus, a former assistant with the New York Giants, will be the assistant secondary coach and Paul Boudreau will coach the offensive line.

Coaching running backs will be Wayne Moses, Doug Nussmeier will coach quarterbacks and Randy Hanson will be the offensive quality control coach.

Bob Ligashesky was retained as special teams coach.

Hahahahaha. This team is gonna be so ****in' terrible next season! I can't wait to give all of the STL people here in Columbia even more shit.

I think they got a solid D-coord, but the rest of those guys don't impress me.

And I have no idea how Linehan keeps getting promotions. IMO, his offense in Minnesota was terribly inept at taking advantage of the talent they had.

They sucked it up with Martz...Stephen Jackson is not too bad though.

When I first started reading that, I thought it was going to say Torry Holt's dad was named WR coach........

I think they'll be better than they were this season. They had no stability with the coaching and they had key players banged up for good parts of the year. Really need to address the D though. Very few D's in the league with less overall talent than St. Louis.
