Sources: Rams hire Josh McDaniels - [Full Article]

Josh McDaniels will be Sam Bradford's new mentor after all.

The Rams hired McDaniels as offensive coordinator, team and league sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

Earlier Tuesday, sources said a significant snag in negotiations between the Rams and McDaniels had led the team to broaden its search to include coaches with West Coast-system roots in which Bradford excelled during his rookie season.

McDaniels will replace Pat Shurmur, who was hired as head coach of the Cleveland Browns last week.

Fantasy Impact: 

Josh McDaniels uniting with Sam Bradford could be a fantasy match made in heaven. Bradford completed an impressive 60% of his passes for 18 TDs and over 3500 yards in his rookie campaign, while Josh McDaniels had Kyle Orton looking like a Pro Bowler before injuries slowed down his season. Expect the pass happy attack to continue in St. Louis, as the Rams look to add a big play receiver in the offseason.
