The St. Louis Rams are in the market for a new Defensive Coordinator.

 

The team fired current coordinator Tim Walton. Head Coach Jeff Fisher said in a release from the team, “I wish him well in the future.” The search for Walton's replacement could be a short one. Gregg Williams is expected to be hired for the position. Williams was originally hired by the Rams in 2012 to serve as Defensive Coordinator, but was suspended for the season after the NFL found out he ran a bounty program while with the New Orleans Saints.

 

Williams was reinstated last year and served as a consultant for the Tennessee Titans.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner says Gov. Pat Quinn's annual address to the Legislature was "a campaign speech from a governor that is failing the people of Illinois."
 
Rauner spoke following the Chicago Democrat's State of the State address Wednesday in Springfield.
 
The Winnetka businessman says Quinn has been in office for five years and is now proposing a new five-year plan for jobs. Rauner notes Illinois has one of the country's highest unemployment rates and higher income taxes than when Quinn took office.
 
Rauner says Illinois is in an "economic death spiral" and Quinn "is trying to cover it up and put a rosy picture on it."
 
Rauner is facing Republican state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady and Treasurer Dan Rutherford in the March primary.

In what may be a record in Jefferson County, a jury has awarded $12.5 million to a railroad worker whose right leg was amputated after being run over by a train.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that 51 year old Michael Bolen of Jackson, Mo., was hurt in May 2012 as he was directing trains in a rail yard in Crystal City.
He claims he was walking along the track and tripped over a boulder that was left in the rail yard. He fell onto the tracks and both legs were run over by a slow-moving train.  His right leg was crushed and he also lost part of the heel on his left foot. 
Bolen's attorney, Nelson Wolff, told the newspaper that Bolen was a conductor/switchman for BNSF Railway and said the train company was negligent in having a rocky area where workers walked.
Wolff said this may be the largest personal-injury verdict in the history of Jefferson County.
