    Default Mike Martz to step down ?

    KMOX Radio in St. Louis just reported Rams HC Mike Martz will step down as head coach of the team, citing health reasons as the major contributing factor in his decision. Martz will reportedly hold a press conference at 5 pm this afternoon to make his announcement official. No replacment has been named, though sources have said Joe Vitt (assistant head coach/linebackers coach) is the leading candidate to take over on an interim basis.


    Rams set news conference; Martz to step down?
    Rams president John Shaw will speak to the media at 6 p.m. ET, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Speculation is coach Mike Martz will step down to tend to a heart ailment.

    Here's one with a linky for yeh

    Rams head coach Mike Martz has decided to resign due to health concerns, according to multiple radio reports in St. Louis.

    Both KMOX and 1380 ESPN Radio reported the move. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's web site, Martz has cancelled his normal Monday press conference and Rams president John Shaw is scheduled to appear at a 5 p.m. news conference instead.

    The Post-Dispatch also reported that Martz was back in the hospital, getting treatment for an infection in his heart valve tissue.

    Martz was on the sidelines Sunday for the Rams' 38-31 loss to the Seahawks, but has missed time repeatedly this season, including a pair of practices last week. Martz said last week that doctors believe he has endocarditis, a bacterial infection of the heart's inner lining of heart valve.

    "This is something that if you let it go, it could become a real issue," Martz told the Associated Press last week.

    Martz has been treated with antibiotics and said he felt better during Sunday's game than he had during the week. But evidently, he did not feel well enough to continue as the Rams head coach.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Well, the Rams are either going to play inspired....or completely fall apart. Let's keep our fingers crossed it's the latter.

    I hope Martz gets better. A heart infection. Man, that sounds very scary.
