Boras to Sleep?..Let's Hope Not
I'm not going to be mad at you if you don't know who the name Frank Cignetti.
I'm also not going to be mad at you if the name Rob Boras doesn't roll off your tongue.
But here's the thing, Cignetti was the Rams offensive coordinator for most of 2015, but was fired with four games remaining. Rob Boras took over play-calling and the Rams finished 3-1 which earned Boras the permanent position of Offensive Coordinator.
Who is Rob Boras?
Boras is 45 years old and hails from Glen Ellyn, Illinois. After attending DePauw University, he became the college's offensive line coach for two seasons before becoming an assistant under John Mackovic through his departure (1997). After one forgettable (3-7) season as head coach at Benedictine University, Boras joined John Robinson at UNLV for four seasons -- coaching the offensive line and serving as the offensive coordinator in his final two seasons. His NFL career began in 2004 as the Bears tight ends coach -- a position he held for six years. He would serve in the same role for two seasons in Jacksonville (2010-2011) and four seasons in St. Louis (2012-2015); until his aforementioned promotion to OC.
