It's been a special season for Rams coach John Fassel, who knows what it's like to be the head honcho

A year ago this week, John Fassel was preparing for a game against the Seattle Seahawks as the Rams’ special teams coordinator.

And then, within hours, he was much more.

The Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher and named Fassel interim head coach.

“I was named in the press conference and then had to go right into the special teams meeting maybe a half-hour later,” Fassel said.

A year later, Fassel is back in his role as special teams coordinator on coach Sean McVay’s staff. And the Rams are again preparing for the Seahawks in a Week 15 game at CenturyLink Field.

The Rams are 9-4 and atop the NFC West. The Seahawks are 8-5 and in second place.
