Fisher Names Boras Offensive Coordinator

Posted Feb 24, 2016

Rob Boras assumed the duties of offensive coordinator in prior to the Rams' Week 14 contest in 2015, and will be in the job full time going forward.

INDIANAPOLIS -- In an expected move, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher officially named Rob Boras offensive coordinator in his media availability on Wednesday afternoon at the NFL Combine.

“I was really pleased with what Rob Boras was able to do down the stretch,” Fisher said.

Boras assumed the duties of offensive coordinator prior to the Rams’ Week 14 contest against the Lions. With Case Keenum as the club’s starting quarterback and Boras as the playcaller, the Rams went 3-1 in the final quarter of the 2015 regular season.

Despite the progress made, the Rams still finished No. 32 in both total and passing offense. To that end, the Rams hired Mike Groh to serve as the passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach. Groh coached wide receivers for the Bears, where he worked under noted offensive minds Adam Gase and Marc Trestman.

“We’re excited about Mike Groh, who has come in as our passing game coordinator [and] he’s going to coach receivers,” Fisher said. “Very appreciative of [Chicago head coach John] Fox and the Bears organization to allow him to move on and join us.”

Elsewhere on the offensive staff, the Rams hired Skip Peete earlier in the offseason as the club’s running backs coach. A veteran coach, Peete’s last two stops have been with the Cowboys and Bears.

“Skip Peete, his stuff speaks for itself,” Fisher said. “He’s an outstanding running backs coach, experienced. Coached a lot of good runners over the years.”

Finally, Fisher said the Rams have hired John Lilly as their tight ends coach. Lilly most recently served in the same position at the University of Georgia.

With Boras, Groh, Peete, and Lilly, the Rams’ offensive staff is now settled for the 2016 season.

“Everything is done on the offensive side of the ball,” Fisher said, “and I can assure you, they’re working very hard right now.”
