LA Rams hire former UCLA interim coach Fisch as assistant

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Rams have hired former UCLA interim head coach Jedd Fisch as a senior offensive assistant.

Rams head coach Sean McVay announced the move Wednesday.

Fisch was the Bruins' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach last season, markedly improving the Bruins' offense during his only year in charge. He also developed a strong bond with star quarterback Josh Rosen, who had a bounce-back season before declaring for the NFL draft.

Fisch then took over for fired head coach Jim Mora for UCLA's regular-season finale, and the Bruins secured bowl eligibility with a victory over California.

Fisch will bolster the Rams' offensive coaching staff after the departure of quarterbacks coach Greg Olson, who is the Oakland Raiders' new offensive coordinator.
