There was no official word from St. Louis yesterday about the possibility of Eagles quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur joining new Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, but a league source said two NFL teams have asked permission to speak with Shurmur about becoming their offensive coordinator.
Shurmur, 43, is an original member of Andy Reid's staff. He spent 3 years coaching tight ends and now has been the quarterbacks coach for seven seasons. Spagnuolo worked with Shurmur the first eight of those seasons, before becoming the Giants' defensive coordinator and winning last season's Super Bowl. *
