The St. Louis Rams head coach is already rumored to have a new job once his old job is terminated. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is expected to fire Spagnuolo after the season.

Once he leaves the Rams, he is expected to return to the Philadelphia Eagles as the new defensive coordinator. There has been much speculation about the job that Juan Castillo has done this season, in his first year as defensive coordinator.

The Eagles currently are in a three game win streak, but apparently that won’t save his job. In the three-game win streak, the Birds have allowed 12 points per game.

Spagnuolo was an Eagles assistant coach from 1999 to 2006, where he was the defensive backs and linebackers coach in that time. After leaving the Eagles, he took the defensive coordinator job with the New York Giants.

Spagnuolo learned from the late Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson while they were both with the Eagles. Spagnuolo uses the blitz-heavy approach that his mentor once used in a 4-3 base defense.

He left the Giants to accept the Rams head coaching position three years ago. Now, his coaching career is expected to take him back to where his NFL coaching career began in Philadelphia.
