Joe Barry To Interview For Rams’ DC Job

Joe Barry, who interviewed last Friday for the USC defensive coordinator’s position, will interview with the Rams as soon as today for their open position, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

I don’t know if the Rams will offer the job to Barry, but I can’t imagine he would take the USC job unless the Rams decide to go in another direction.

  • USC offensive tackle Clayton Bradley has entered the NCAA transfer portal. Bradley’s played in three games the past two seasons because of injuries.

    1. Is it because Clay would hand him a thirty- one page list of “don’ts” to date & initial? And the list would include “never criticize anyone —be they university president, athletic director or 3rd string center”? Or would it be the bit about “never wear purple and stay away from avocados on Thursdays”?

  1. Every USC fan better hope he gets the Rams job because Barry is a complete failure as a DC, which is why Gomer interviewed him to begin with.

    If Barry doesn’t come, is Gomer, or Bohn, down to calling a local high school coach to be DC ?

    1. Bohn: “There are some very fine high school coaches out there. I’m more excited than ever that no one from the NFL is interested in us.”

      1. Not true at all, and PC was a DC for only 2 years at SF during his time as an NFL coach. He was a DC at Pacific and NC State, not exactly football powers.

        1995 defensive stats
        They finished number one in total defense, surrendering just 275 yards per game, along with being the top rushing defense and finishing second in points allowed

        4th in points allowed
        7th in rushing yards allowed

  2. Karma, In college he was a DC at NC State, and Pacific. He was a secondaries Asst at Arkansas, Iowa State and Ohio State. Then;
    in the NFL he coached Def backs at Buffalo and Minnesota. DC at Jets and 49er’s. Head coach at New England and then went to USC.
    I would say he spent a lot of time coaching defense in a lot of rolls at a lot of locations.

    1. Your post was this “Pete Caroll was a DC at quite a few locations”
      Not DB coach,
      not punting coach,
      not QB coach,
      DC coach
      3 jobs as a DC, not that many for a guy who has been coaching since 1977


  3. A little humor to break up the angst of the DC search. Don’t blame me, a friend sent it to me:

    Trump finally breaks down and visits a remote indian rez. With news crews following him around as they tour the place, the potus asks the chief if there was anything the people need.

    “Well,” says the chief, “We have three very important needs. First, we have a medical clinic, but no doctor.”

    Trump whips out his phone, dials a number, talks to somebody for two minutes and then hangs up. “I’ve pulled some strings. Your doctor will arrive in a few days. Now what was the second problem?”

    “We have no way to get clean water. The local mining operation has poisoned the water our people been drinking for thousands of years. We’ve been flying bottled water in, and it’s terribly expensive.”

    Once again, Trump dials a number, yells into the phone for a few minutes, and then hangs up. “The mine has been shut down, and the owner is being billed for setting up a purification plant for your people. Now what was that third problem?”

    “We have no cellphone reception up here,” the chief says.


    1. Did you see this breaking news today?

      ATLANTA, GA – According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control released on Thursday, people with inside, compromising knowledge of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s financial and political dealings are 843% more likely to commit suicide.

      “We’ve never seen a single risk factor cause a spike of this magnitude,” a CDC spokesperson told reporters. “Interestingly, in spite of their increased suicide risk, people with dirt on the Clintons rarely show any warning signs of suicide, and they never leave a suicide note.”
