The moves could come as early as Monday, but are expected no later than Tuesday, Chris Mortensen reported, citing an unnamed source. However, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Jim Thomas reported Sunday night that no decision had yet been made about Spagnuolo and Devaney.

The Rams, 10-38 in three seasons under Spagnuolo, finished 2-14, tied with the Indianapolis Colts for the worst record in the NFL. The Rams will have the second pick in the draft in April; they now have had four top-two picks in five seasons.

The Rams lost 34-27 to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, with Kroenke not in attendance in St. Louis. Asked whether he might have coached his final game, Spagnuolo replied: “I don’t go there.”
