Steve Spagnuolo Biography
Steve Spagnuolo was born December 21, 1959 in Whitinsville, Massachusetts and is the current head coach of the St. Louis Rams. He was previously the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants from January 2007 to January 2009, and also served for eight years under defensive coordinator Jim Johnson of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Spagnouolo began his NFL coaching career in the Philadelphia Eagles organization in 1999, serving as linebackers and defensive backs coach. He remained there for eight years, learning Jim Johnson's defensive philosophy. It was under Johnson that Spagnouolo cultivated his trademark look, Goatee and buzz cut.
In January 2007, he was hired as the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants, under Head Coach Tom Coughlin. He also spent a stint under Bill Parcells at Dallas Cowboys organization.
Following another successful season in 2008, Spagnuolo's name came up as a replacement for numerous head coaching vacancies once again, including those for the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, and Detroit Lions, but Spagnuolo later decided to sign with the St. Louis Rams, taking over their head coaching vacancy with a 4-year, $11.5 million dollar contract. Spagnuolo has hired Pat Shurmur and Ken Flajole to be the Rams' offensive and defensive coordinators respectively.
Spagnuolo learned under Philadelphia coach Jim Johnson, and shares the same aggressive, blitz-heavy approach as his mentor. Spagnuolo uses a 4-3 base defense with a heavy emphasis on multiple blitz packages, including corner and safety blitzes. While defensive coordinator of the New York Giants, he often used a smaller defensive line, with three or even four defensive ends to further pressure the quarterback.
This philosophy proved successful, with the Giants leading the NFL in sacks in 2007. During Super Bowl XLII, Spagnuolo's defense sacked Tom Brady five times, the most times he had been sacked in any game that season.
