Wade Phillips has agreed to terms to become Rams defensive coordinator, per source.
It's not often that a coordinator of Phillips' caliber is available, so this is a good hire for the Rams. Phillips ran one of the best defenses in the league the last two years in Denver. Before that, his Texans D was in the top seven in yards allowed for three straight years. Before that, his Cowboys D finished in the top nine in yards allowed in three of his four seasons in Dallas.
