Nolan Cromwell, Texas A&M’s offensive coordinator the past two seasons, has resigned to become the wide receivers coach for the St. Louis Rams, school officials announced today.
Cromwell, a former Rams’ player (1977-87), oversaw an A&M offense that ranked fifth nationally in yards (465.8 per game) and 19th nationally in scoring (32.9 points per game) last season. A&M coach Mike Sherman did not set a timetable for naming Cromwell’s replacement.
Cromwell, who has coached at the NFL level for 17 of the last 19 seasons, issued a statement saying he is “excited” to return to the Rams’ organization and predicted that Sherman “will get things fixed on defense and in all phases of the game” during his tenure at A&M.
A&M finished 6-7 last season, giving Sherman a combined mark of 10-15 during his two seasons in College Station.
