Rams Interview Lions Secondary Coach Tim Walton

With Jeff Fisher taking over as the new head coach of the St. Louis Rams, there has been speculation that he could hire some members of the Detroit Lions' coaching staff. Specifically, defensive assistant Brandon Fisher, who is Jeff Fisher's son, has been rumored to be headed to St. Louis. It looks like he might not be the only one potentially leaving the Lions for the Rams, though. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Tim Walton, secondary coach in Detroit from 2009-11, is interviewing Saturday with Fisher for what could be a job as assistant defensive coordinator/passing game.

Walton was hired by the Lions in 2009 after Jim Schwartz became the head coach. Walton was previously the defensive coordinator at the University of Memphis and also spent time at Miami (Florida), LSU, Syracuse and Bowling Green.

According to Dave Birkett, the Lions have offered their position coaches contracts for next season, so I would imagine Walton will be back if he doesn't land the job with the Rams.
