PHOENIX -- Jim Mora's first scheduled staff meeting as Seahawks head coach was scheduled for Monday, according to outgoing coach Mike Holmgren.

We should expect to learn more about Mora's plans for his staff in the coming days. Some have asked about former Lions coach Rod Marinelli possibly landing in Seattle. Adam Schefter thinks it could happen. Marinelli has ties to the Seahawks' front office.

In St. Louis, the Rams are expected to interview former Giants coach Jim Fassel on Thursday, according to Chris Mortensen. The team has received permission to speak with Todd Bowles, Ray Sherman, Rex Ryan and Leslie Frazier, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Winston Moss already interviewed, and there are no plans for a follow up at this time.

I'll be monitoring the coaching situations in the division from Arizona before returning home Monday night. I'm booked for Carolina and looking forward to the divisional round.
