Cameron in St. Louis?

Although not highly publicized, San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is closing in on a job as a head coach.

Cam Cameron had a second interview with the St. Louis Rams on Monday and is a frontrunner for the job.

In the lone interview that Cameron was able to conduct this year with the media – head coach Marty Schottenheimer does not allow his assistants to interview – the former Indiana head coach came across as thoughtful and eloquent, saying all the right things.

The Chargers ended the year as the number five scoring offense in the league, and were in the top three until the final two weeks of the season when they managed just 14 points.

A year ago, the Chargers placed third in the NFL in scoring. The rushing offense has been a top ten entity each of the last two years.

Cameron has competition in landing the Rams job. St. Louis has interviewed Miami offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.

The Rams would like to have their head coach in place by the end of the week to prepare for the Senior Bowl. Cameron, who was the last candidate to interview appears to have won a few people over with his confidence.

"You are always adjusting and evolving," Cameron said in his lone interview.

And that evolution may see him as a head coach in the NFL in short order.
